15. Rev. Hayne Rivers presented the Associational Training Union Report and madi 
the motion that it be adopted. It was approved. :* 

TRAINING UNION REPORT 

Your Associational Training Union organization has been busily engaged 
promoting the Baptist Training Union in Gaston Association throughout the pa^ 
year. Advisory help has been forthcoming from our associational officers to the loc 
churches when requested. Four quarterly officers' and leaders conferences were hell 
during the year and such important subjects as the new **Life and Work Curriculum,: 
•'Training Potential Leaders," and the **New Member Orientation Program" we; 
treated. - . 

26 



•*M Night" was held in December at the First Baptist Church, Gastonia with Dr. 
Cecil Sherman, pastor of the First Baptist Church, Asheville, bringing the inspirational 
.; message. There were 744 in attendance with 66 churches and 54 pastors represented. 
Our attendance was up nearly 100 over the previous year and represented the fifth 
largest **M Night" attendance in North Carolina. It is significant to note that with 
<**M Night" attendance declining all over our convention our association was one of 
jthe few associations showing an increase. 

Associational Tournaments were held in April at Ranlo Baptist Church. There 
Iwere 60 Junior Memory Work Winners. The Intermediate Sword Drill winner was 
j Roger Hawkins of the Loray Baptist Church, Gastonia. The winner of the Better 
Speaker's Tournament was Miss Sharon Rawlings of First Baptist Church, Gastonia. 
I Mrs. Buford Blanton, Jr. of Loray Baptist Church won the Adult Bible Reader's Tourna- 
ment. Only 9 of our 87 churches had contestants in the tournaments. They were 
Loray, Alexis, Temple, East Gastonia, Fairview, Unity Gastonia, First Baptist 
Gastonia, First Baptist Mt. Holly and First Baptist Cherryville. The First Baptist 
Church Cherryville had 24 winners in the Junior Memory Work Tournament. 

Our annual Associational Youth Night Program was held in April at Temple 
Baptist Church. Don Mc Murray varsity football player and ministerial student at 
jWake Forest was the speaker. The Youth Choir of the First Baptist Church Belmont 
under the direction of Mr. Jim Long made a distinct contribution to the success of 
the service. There were over 100 young people in attendance. 

Once again this past year our Associate Director in charge of training Rev. 
Harold Brown did an outstanding work in offering training opportunities to our 
'churches. Under his direction a Central TYaining School was held at the First Baptist 
[Church Gastonia with eleven courses taught including the five newly revised methods 
^books. Over 100 persons received awards for books studied. 

\ While the overall enrolment for the Training Union in the churches of our As- 
ssociation declined last year as compared with the year before, the Gaston Association 
[regained its position as the number one TYaining Union Association in enrolment in 
:|the North Carolina Baptist State Convention. It is to be regretted that 10 of our 87 
bhurches reported no Training Union at the end of the 1965 Associational year. The . 
demise of 4 Training Unions accounted in the main for our overall decrease in 
enrolment. With enrolment on the decline in Training Union all over the Southern 
Baptist Convention some are jestingly suggesting that the Training Union might 
more appropriately be called the Straining Union implying that the organization is 
having to strain to stay alive. May I suggest that Baptists should strain to help the 
[Training Union thrive and grow that through fulfillment of its intended purpose our 
[churches may be strengthened in leadership. 

i I would like to express my appreciation to all the officers of our associational 
ibrganization who worked with me during this past year. On more than one occasion 
these faithful workers prepared for a quarterly conference only to have no one in 
attendance for their conference. Such faithfulness as many of them manifested in 
'the midst of discouraging indifference from our churches will be rewarded by our 
!|Heavenly Father. 

LAs Rev. Leonard Quick assumes the duties of Associational Training Union 
ector may I request your loyalty, support and prayers for him and our associational 
^pfficers in this associational year. 

I

16. Mr. Forest Roberts, Associational Sunday School Director, asked Jim Long: 
Associate Director to give the Sunday School report. He made the motion that the 
report be adopted. It was seconded and carried. 

REPORT OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL 

Gaston Association ranks 3rd among the largest Associations of North Carolina, 
Our Sunday School enrollment is 4th, according to our minutes, our VBS enrollment 
is 1st, although it has been sometime since lOO^o of our churches have had schools "' 
in a single year. From time to time, we have led the state in Study Course Awards. ; 
A few of our Sunday Schools and many departments and classes are "standard." 

We are happy for this much, but there is much left to be desired. Almost 10,000 
of our church members are not enrolled in Sunday School. On a whole, our people 
have been slow to train, enlist, up grade the quality of their methods and teaching 
whether through local church courses or associational conferences and training 
schools. 

Your associational Sunday School organization exists to help Sunday Schools do 
a better job in teaching God's Word. 

GASTON'S PILOT PROJECT - \ 

Whether it has been done before or not, we do not know. Gaston Association, 
this year, called in its pastors and superintendents of Sunday School for a supper 
meeting in which vital issues were discussed. The program for 1966-67 was presented ' 
with the use of visual aids. All types of literature was displayed and demonstrations 
given on how and where to find what was needed. A panel of educational directors 
told how they prepared, trained, and used their workers. The associational Superin- 
tendent offered each church the services of his staff. Everyone had the highest praise,: 
for the helpfulness given. 

THE NEED TO UP-GRADE TEACHING 

In many Sunday School classes, Bible knowledge is given without the proper 
application to the heart breaking problems of the pupils. Each age has its own 
problems. Therefore on October 31 - November 3, the Sunday School Leadership 
School, with books on teaching, will be held at GASTONIA, FIRST. We urge ever^i 
church to send their teachers. 

Respectfully submitted. 
Forest Roberts 

17. Mrs. James Lineberger gave the V/.M.U. report with the motion that it be 
adopted. There was a second and the motion carried. 

WMU REPORT ^ ; 

Members of Woman's Missionary Union of the Gaston Baptist Association, 
strengthened by a year of emphasis on Worship, have had a busy year in 1966. 
"Having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to 
every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people," was our watchword to challenge 
us in our area. 

Twelve members of the Executive Board received training both at the Summer 
Conference at Ridgecrest and at our State Workshops at Fruitland. During the year, 
members of the Executive Board taught in local churches. They helped to strengthen 
existing work and to begin new work. Cherryville, Second, Frayley Memorial, and 
Robinwood are the three new WMS organizations. 

Shady Grove was the WMU organization to achieve honor recognition on the Aims 
for Advancement. ^ ' ' ^^ 

28 



The churches reporting GA Coronations are: Ridge, three Queens; Seventh Avenue, 
five Queens, one Queen with Scepter; Loray, five Queens, four Queens with Scepter, 
one Queen Regent; Bruington Memorial, one Queen Regent; Dallas, a Queen Regent in 
Service; Parkwood, one Queen, 

Gaston, Berea, Sunset Forest and Catawba Heights had GA presentations for 
girls passing Forward Steps. 

There were new YWA organizations at Rankin Lake, East Belmont, and Seventh 
Avenue. 

Cherry ville Second and Catawba Heights had a White Bible presentation; Temple, 
two, and Sunset Forest, two. 

Leadership courses were taught at Belmont First in February and at Bessemer City 
First in September. Three churches taught these courses individually: Cherryville 
Second, Ridgeview, and Chapel Grove. 

The Prayer Chairman led us in two Associational Prayer Retreats as well as 
local ones. Several local YWA and GA organizations held Prayer Retreats. 

Our Community Missions Director continued in efforts that were begun last 
year: Thirty- five residents in our County Home were ministered to by volunteers. 
Thirty- five children at the Orthopaedic Hospital received care and attention. In the 
Negro work, a week-day ministry was sponsored by the giving of financial help, 

! supplies, and volunteer help for nine months to the Windy Hill Community Center 
and Kindergarten. The same type help was given to five Negro Bible Schools. 
The Literacy work continues to be carried on in ten areas. One Workshop was 
■iheld training fifteen new teachers. The Home Mission Board flew OUR OWN Mrs. 
jWoodrow Daves to Bluefield, W. Va. to teach a Literacy Workshop. 

One main emphasis has been the solicitation of volunteer help and supplies for 
jour Gaston Baptist Center. 

I Mission Studies on Brazil acquainted our people with the needs on this great 
jcontinent. Then came the Week of Prayer for Foreign Missions and the Lottie Moon 
iChristmas Offering. An Institute in January gave added emphasis and help for 
iteachers of the Home Missions books on Panama. Following these studies came 
our Week of Prayer for Home Missions and the Annie Armstrong Offering. 

There remains so much to be done. God grant us Grace and strength to do our 
very best in the opportunities that are ours. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. James Lineberger 

18. Rev. Alfred Wright, Associational Brotherhood President, gave the Brother- 
hood report with the motion that it be adopted. It was seconded and carried. 

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

Brotherhood is a new concept, a new look. The concept is simple. Minimum 
organization, maximum action. 

Our churches should ask of themselves these three questions: (1) Have we tried 
to serve God without serving man? (2) Have we tried to serve men without serving 
all men? (3) Have we tried to serve man without serving all the man? 

The concept in Brotherhood should help us correct these mistakes if we have 
made them. We are not as interested in enrolment as we are involvement. 

In the Baptist Men's and Baptist Young Men's units there are two new officers — 

iThe Mission Study Leader and The Mission Action Leader. Missionary education 

and missionary involvement for the men, young men and boys is our objective. 

The Brotherhood Director is also a new officer. He oversees the three units. He 

^|,serves on the church council. He presides over the Brotherhood Council. He is the 

link between the organization and the church. He is equal to the Sunday School 

29 



( 



Superintendent, the Training Union Director, and the W.M.U. President. 

The Royal Ambassador leader is on an equal with the Baptist Men's and Baptist 

Young Men's Presidents. He serves on the Brotherhood Council. He also serves on 

the Baptist Men's Planning Committee. This ties the men and boys together in 

education and involvement. 

The program is flexible. Adapt it to your local church for your local needs. 
There is much to do. We have much with which to do. There is so little time. 

Get your men, young men, and boys involved in studying missions and in mission 

actions. 



19. Mr. Dwight Holden was recognized to give his Music Report. He made the | 
motion that the report be adopted, it was seconded and carried. | 

MUSIC REPORT 

One of the greatest mediums through which we worship is in music. How wonder- 
ful to hear a church singing the great hymns of Zion. People like to sing. No wonder 
that nearly half of our worship services are musical. Because of this, churches arej 
realizing the importance of securing persons to lead them in their music ministry, 

We are happy to see and hear of so many of the churches in our association} 
feeling the need to begin a music ministry or expand their music ministry by adding] 
to the church staff ministers of music and also starting new musical organizations. 
Not only did we gain new leadership this year, but some of our churches saw the 
need and were willing to share their choirs and musical organizations with other 
churches. Some of our churches saw the need of training and informing their church 
members in church music by having music study courses, piano classes, class 
voice, music schools, and other training sessions. * 

Our association had one hymn- sing in the Dallas-Stanley District. The attendance 
was very encouraging with over 400 people present. This year your associational 
music committee has scheduled one hymn- sing to be held on a Sunday afternoon at 
Sims Legion Park, the date to be announced later. 

On July 12- 15, 1967, the Gaston Associational Junior Music Camp will meet for 
four days with outstanding musicians from our convention to lead and direct the music 
This camp will be very beneficial to every church if each church will try to encourage 
every Junior boy and girl to attend. We had 5 Junior and Youth choirs to attend our 
state music camps at Caswell and Fruitland. 

An associational music conference will be held August 28, 1967 at the First 
Baptist Church of Belmont. This conference will be for all music leaders and pastors 
of our association. Eleven choirs attended the regional choir festival with each choir 
giving an outstanding performance. 

The associational music director and music officers express the hope that every 
church, whether large or small, will seek to encourage more participation in all 
musical activities in their own local church as well as the association, that we; 
through music, might lead our people to a closer walk with the Lord and be eager to 
say, "Sing unto the Lord a new song."

He read the report that follows and made the motion that same be adopted. The 
report was adopted.

REPORT ON EVANGELISM 
y The world is becoming more pagan every day: Just to keep pace with growth 
j in world population requires that 110,000 people be won to Christ every day .. .4,500 
1 every hour. 

' According to the minutes of Gaston Baptist Association for 1965 there were 
27,975 resident members. These members baptized 1,223 people. This means that 
lit required 23 Gaston Baptists to reach one person for Christ in a year's time. 
I Together we had 10,210,875 days that year. Yet it required 8,349 of those days, or 
I 23 years of our combined time, with all our praying and all our visiting and all our 
j witnessing to win one soul. 

What efforts did we put forth for souls this past year? We had a simultaneous 
; revival crusade in the spring. Community revival efforts were engaged in by churches 
I in Cramerton, McAdenville, Mount Holly, Dallas and Stanley. It is believed that 
{ every church promoted soul- winning visitation in some way. 

What is the need? C.E. Autrey says in his book, "YOU CAN WIN SOULS," that 
97^0 of the unchurched and unsaved never attend church and the only way we will 
ever reach them is through personal evangelism. We must realize that we have been 
saved to serve. As God sent the Saviour into the world to seek and to save that which 
was lost, even so He has sent us. It is time for every Christian to realize that God 
expects him to win souls. Our problem is not a lack of preparation as much as it is a 
lack of dedication. We are not soul winners because we don't want to be. If we are 
not winning others to Christ it is because we are not following Him as we should, 
for He has promised, "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."

21. Mr. Dwight Holden led the congregation in singing hymn no. 269 "Blessed 
Assurance," 

22. The Vice-Moderator, Mr. Marvin Willis read scripture taken from the first

23. The group was then led in singing hymn No. 355 "Have Thine Own Way" 
by Dwight Holden. 

24. Rev. James Taylor gave the Moderator's Address entitled "The Church." 

WHAT THE CHURCH HAS TO OFFER 
October 20. 1966 James S. Taylor 

EPHESIANS 1:1-14 

In this passage the Apostle Paul is referring to the Church, God's redeemed 
people. He speaks of the heavenly blessings which the church has received through 
Jesus Christ. The Christians have "been adopted as children; they have received 
redemption and the forgiveness of sins and obtained an inheritance," and through 
the Holy Spirit they are "sealed unto the day of redemption." The church has 
received all these things as gifts of God through Jesus Christ. In the light of all that 
the church has received, it therefore has much to offer the world, even a world which 
brags of its atomic and nuclear power, electrical gadgets innumerable, full auto- 
mation, wealth, luxury and ease. 

A Minister called a phone number to invite a family at attend the church which he 
sferved. He was completely taken back, even "flabbergasted" by the woman's blunt 
question, "What do you have to offer?" Well, what do we, the redeemed people of 
God, have to offer the world? 1. Some say that the church has the solution to the 
many social ills of the day, but in order to bring its influence to bear upon these 
ills, the church must influence legislation to right these wrongs. Is that all the church 

31 



has to offer the world? 2. Recently in a certain state, the leaders of the KKK were 
invited to hold services in several Baptist churches in which they stated that they 
sought to maintain the "God-given supremacy of the white race." Is such as this " 
all that the church can offer the world? 3. Some churches in recent years have 
jazzed-up" their music programs so as to induce the youth to attend. Is that all 
we can offer the world? 4. Physically, we can offer spacious buildings in which 
to worship, to eat; a place for recreation; or places for Sunday School, Bible study 
etc., but is this all we have to offer the world? 

I would like to present several time- honored and etemal values which the church 
can offer to the world. These things we can offer to the world because they were 
given to us. ■' 

I. We offer God as Personal Friend 
We offer God in all His greatness as Creator and Lord of the Universe; He whose 
image resides in every human being. We offer God in His nearness to those who draw' 
near to Him. He is a friend who is close to a person and He is always near in time 
of crisis and need. Paul once said. "God is not far from any of us, for in Him we 
live and move and have our being." 

n. We offer Christ as the divine Redeemer 

Those who study human personality in depth are awaie that every soul seeks 
communion and reunion with the Eternal. Man essentially seeks redemption, and the 
Bible teaches us that man has no other means of redemption but through Christ 
The Apostle Peter once said. "There is none other name, under heaven, given amona 
men. whereby we can be saved." 

God's ultimate friendship and love for all men was revealed in Jesus Christ. 
Jesus said, "Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his 
friends." Jesus gave His life on the cross for the redemption of all mankind. There- 
fore, through Jesus Christ, God accepts us as sinners and tries to make us better,^ 
men. Through Jesus Christ, God accepts us as we are and makes us over into 
acceptable Children. It is this that we offer to the world; a chance to be accepted by 
God to a better life through Jesus Christ as the divine Redeemer. 
III. We offer faith as a means of victory over life. 

How much of the world today, even in our nation of plenty, are sinking in the 
"slough of despond" and despair; who feel defeated; who fear and tremble- who 
therefore turn to such things as alcohol, dope, tranquilizers and even suicide as a 
way out of their hopelessness. But offer FAITH as a deterrent to these things. John 
said, "This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." Someone 
has said, " - - - that fear is a deadly foe to healthful living. Fear imprisons, faith 
liberates; fearparalyzes, faith empowers; fear disheartens, faith encourages; fear 
sickens, faith heals; fear makes useless, faith makes serviciable; fear puts hope- 
lessness m the heart, faith rejoices in God." The church offers faith as a means of 
victorious living. Dr. Carl Jung once said to a fearful and troubled patient, "You 
have lost your faith in God." the patient replied, "Why, Dr. you don't believe all 
this stuff about God and the future life, do you?" The Dr. responded, I'm a Dr., 
not a Priest, but this I know, if you do not recapture your faith in God, you will never 
get well." ^ 

IV. We offer service as a way of abundant living 

The Apostle James said. "Faith without works is dead." A fruitless life is a 
life without faith. A faithless life is a life without fruits. Where there is no fruitful 
living there is no faith. The church does not offer a negative life, any neutral life, 
but an active, useful life in the service of God and man. Jesus never offered His 
disciples an easy sort of life or a life of ease and comfort apart from active service. 

The Bible teaches us that all of life is to be geared to human service and need. 
Thereby all vocations are glorified. All talent is to be consecrated to God. All time 
is to be redeemed by good works. All wealth is to be held in righteous stewardship. ' 

- . ■ 32 ■ ' , ■ ; 



The church offers its people tremendous tasks, not timid tidings. Jesus taught 
that abundant living came from abundant service to God and man. 

V We offer a fellowship which is heart- warming. i. u u 

Here within the church is a fellowship of people that shares with each other the 
ioYS and sorrows of life. When one weeps he does not weep alone. When one rejoices 
he does not rejoice alone. The Apostle Paul has said that the Christian should weep 
with those who weep and rejoice with those who rejoice." In this fashion, the 
warmth of the church's fellowship draws the world to its membership. (It may be that 
at times we are judged as the world looks at the "nominal,' the neutra the 
disgruntled members who have retired from active service within the church fellow- 
ship but this is not the tme picture of the church.) Let us rather pray and live so 
that the world will judge our fellowship by the inner circle of men and women who love 
one another, who show compassion, who are devoted to Christ and to each other in 
such a way that the world desires to be a part of such a fellowship. A part of our 
offer to the world is a fellowship of heart-warming love and friendship. 

VI. Finally, we offer eternal life as the great adventure. 

Job long ago. asked the question. "If a man die. shall he live again? The 
church 'answers in Christ's name. "YES. he shall live again." For Jesus told His 
disciples, along with Mary and Martha. "He that believeth in me. though he were 
dead, yet shall he live. For whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. 
Through Jesus Christ, we offer eternal life to the world. 

These things which we have mentioned as being the church's offer to the world 
are but a grain of the gospel, a small part of all that God did for man in Christ. We 
can simply offer to the world the "unsearchable riches of Christ." The cpestion is 
"Do we ourselves accept these big offers? And do we also present them to the world.-' 

25. The meeting was adjourned and the benediction was pronounced by Rev. Joe 

Whitworth. ^ . . . , 

26. After a delicious meal the session enjoyed a time of inspirational music 
prior to the evening meeting. Dwight Holden and Jim Long sang "It Took a Miracle" 
and ''The Ivory Palaces." 

THURSDAY NIGHT 

27. The evening session opened with a worship period led by Dwight Holden 
entitled "The Cross." He first led the congregation in singing hymn No. 94 "At 
The Cross" and then led in prayer. Mr. Jim Long assisted Mr. Holden with responsive 
reading No. 67, "The Christian Cross." They then sang "Beneath The Cross of 
Jesus." The congregation sang hymn No. 97 "Jesus Keep Me Near The Cross' to 
conclude a very meaningful worship period. 

28. The evening session was called to order promptly at 7 P.M. by the Vice- 
Moderator, Marvin Willis. 

29. Reverend Yates Campbell presented the Missions Committee Report and made 
the motion that the report be adopted. It was seconded and carried. 

MISSIONS REPORT 1966-1967 
During the year 1965- 66 the Missions Committee has tried to accomplish certain 
long-range goals and projected plans within the Missions Committee for future 
missions needs in Gaston County. . , 

I. GOALS ACCOMPLISHED: 

1. The Missions Committee referred action to the Executive Committee and 
received approval for establishing a temporary child-care home in Gastonia. 
This home was in operation from February 1. 1966 until mid- summer. The 
Committee is currently seeking a new home to continue this work. 

2. The Committee assisted in the organization of Smyre Mission into a duly 
constituted Baptist Church- now the Fraley Memorial Baptist Church. 

33 



3. The Committee has kept under watchcare the Alexander Memorial Baptist 
Church, Belmont, N.C., during 1965-66 and has received under watch- 
care the Robinwood Baptist Church, Gastonia, N.C. We have recommended 
that these fellowships be received into the Gaston Baptist Association. 

4. The Committee carried forth the recommendation of the Association to 
establish a Week Day Goodwill Center. This was done in cooperation 
with the Temple Baptist Church who provided the facilities for this work. 
Mrs. W.W. Daves was chosen as Director and Coordinator of the Center. 

n. RECOMMENDED GOALS FOR FUTURE MISSION ACTIVITIES: 

1. Continue and expand the Week Day Goodwill Centers throughout Gaston 
County as needed. 

2. Lay plans to establish a directed program of juvenile work in Gaston County 
sponsored by the Gaston Baptist Association. 

3. Outline and make recommendations to the Association for a cooperative 
program of care for the aging. 

m. FINANCING THE PROGRAM: 

The Committee strongly endorses the plan of financing the missions pro- 
gram as recommended by the Finance Committee of the Association of 
2^0 of the total budget of each church going to Associational Missions. 
We would encourage churches and individuals to consider this in the light 
of the Great Commission: "Beginning in Jerusalem. . .ye are my witnesses" 
(Acts 1:8). 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Harold Strickland 

Max Pendleton 

Harold Long 

Mrs. Charles Meares 

Yates W. Campbell, Chairman 

30. The Moderator introduced Mrs. Fred Propst from the Capitol Hill Baptist 
Church in Atlanta, Georgia. Mrs. Propst stirred the hearts of everyone present with 
the slides and story of her work with the Home Mission Board, 

31. Mrs. W.W. Daves, Director of the Gaston Baptist Center here in our county, 
gave a report of the work started here and of the many needs. 

32. Mr. Dwight Holden led the session in singing hymn No. 455 "We've a Story 
to Tell." Special music followed by the Loray Choir. They sang "Come, Come Ye 
Saints" and the "Twenty- third Psalm." 

33. The Associational Sermon was preached by Reverend Hoyle Allred, pastor 
of Flint Groves Baptist Church, Gastonia. He asked his wife, Mrs. Dorothy Allred to 
read his scripture. 

THE ATERNATIVE TO DESTRUCTION 

Scripture: Deuteronomy 8:1-20 

Introduction: Throughout the book of Deuteronomy, Moses has reviewed what. 

great things God has done for his people, and now, just before entering the land of 

promise, he pauses to warn the people of their coming power, prosperity and privilege 

and he says. 

But thou Shalt remember the Lord thy God: For it is he that giveth thee power 
to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy 
fathers, as it is this day. And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy 
God, and walk after other Gods, and serve them, I testify against you this day 
that ye shall surely perish. Deut. 8:18-19 

They forgot and as a nation perished from the face of the earth as God' s chosen 

people - the instruments of his service 

34 



Affirmation: The history of Gaston Baptists strangely follows the history of 
Israel: A called people who are playing the folly of forgetting God and lest we too 
■perish, we must remember and give loyalty to Him that His covenant with us may be 
established. 

I. The history of Gaston Baptists is one of faith, forgetting, ill- fortune, forsaking 
and favor. 

A. Only one church (Baptist) in the county from 1771 (Long Creek) until 1853 
(Bruington) and then Sandy Plains in 1863. 

1. Came the period of the Civil War and in its aftermath of poverty and 
destitution the people tumed to God and first, Gastonia; Hickory Grove; 
First, Belmont and Dallas were organized in rapid order, 

2. God blessed. The people forgot. Depression came. They turned again and 
then McAdenville, Shady Grove and Cherryville First came on the scene. 

3. History repeated itself and there was a falling away and out of the Spanish 
American War came East, Gastonia; High Shoals and Loray. 

4. They did it again and World War I reminded them to turn again unto the 
Lord and Calvary, Ranlo, Flint-Groves and Temple churches are continuing 
reminders of the folly of forgetting God. 

B. We could move through the depression of the 20' s. World War H, Korea and 
now the Vietnam conflict, and see that God is dealing with us after our sin. 

1. How long will it be before we continuously love the Lord our God, do his 
will, and know his continuing blessings. 

2. I am afraid that even now we are more concerned with preaching to our- 
selves, meeting our own needs and seeking to be more abundantly blessed 
than to care for the needs of others. Illustration - Of Jewish friend who 
has become completed in Christ - note that I said "completed" not 
converted for God established his covenant completely to Abraham 
through Jesus our Saviour - who said to me with tears in his eyes, "When 
will Christians stop preaching to themselves and go and tell my people?" 

II. If out of blessing, then we must give extreme loyalty to Christ, His Church, 
Its Doctrine and Its Purpose, 
A. It is Loyalty to Christ and His Church. 

1. It is not loyalty to a building or to a particular group of people with which 
we are concerned at this point, but loyalty to Christ and the redeemed of 
the ages, 

a. Jesus loved the church and gave himself for it. 

b. If we love Him, we ought to love his church and be a participating mem- 
ber of a local congregation but not to the point of holding "graveyard" 
membership only. That is, having membership "back home" but have 
been living here the last forty years or was that four months? As soon 
as we are removed from this place we OUGHT to move our member-- 
ship. To say that the folks back home won't like it is the same as 
saying "I left my furniture back there because the man I bought it 
from won't like it if I move it!" He sold it to you to use and the folks 
back home who led you to salvation want you to serve the Lord and show 
that they raised you right! 

c. We love the Lord and His church and it' s where we are. 

2. It is not loyalty to a pastor or to any other particular church leader. The 
Church of our Christ is bigger than any person. If we're just loyal to 
people, we've missed the real nature of our being together and may be 
hurting the cause of Christ by failure to be loyal to Christ and his church 
when "our" leader is not on His throne. 

3. And for the Pastor, this loyalty to Christ and His church may call for 
rethinking a ministry and finding a new avenue of service elsewhere, in 

35 



the chaplaincy, mission service, juvenile delinquents, prisons or others. 
It may be that the loyalty calls for living above slights and slurs to dig a 
little deeper and find the gold that still is in the mine where you now serve. I' 
4. IT IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY EVIDENT THAT PASTOR AND PEOPLE 
MUST BEGIN TO TAKE LOYALTY TO CHRIST AND HIS CHURCH MORE 
SERIOUSLY OR THE NON- CHRISTIAN WORIJD WILL NOT TAKE IT AT 
ALL! 

B. We must be loyal to the Doctrines of the Church. 

1. I am a Baptist minister. I make no bones about it. I am what I am because 
of conviction. If someone else wants to be otherwise, that's his choice, 
but I must stand for what I believe and seek to convince others. If you 
can be something else, you ought to be, but if a Baptist, then hold the 
fort for when the inner faith fails - - all fails. 

2. We have distinctives as Baptists and when we are no longer loyal to our 
beUefs we shall cease to be a leavening effect on our society. We must 
be loyal to these doctrines: 

a. The New Birth- by grace and faith and not of intellect and works. The 
individual is responsible, 

b. Competence of the individual to judge for himself on matters relating 
to the scriptures, the Christian life and works- - but- - under the leader- 
ship of the Holy Spirit. The New Testament is the final authority but 
along with the privilege of interpreting for ourselves stands the awesome 
responsibility of standing in judgment on the basis of our interpretation. 

c. Separation of church and state and congregational government. Not a 
State Church or a Church State but each congregation under God. 

d. Preservation of the purity of the gospel pictures as they relate to Baptism 
and the Lord' s Supper. It' s true that you do not have to be baptized in , 
order to be saved but if you are- - you will be! 

e. Pastor and deacons the only scriptural church officers. 

f . The Christian is saved to serve and is missionary in all his endeavors, 

C. We are to be Loyal to the Purpose of the Church. 

1. What is it? Well, it's not a supper club. Nor does it exist just for fellow- 
ship. This may be a part of our being together but must not become our 
sole purpose for existing. 

2. We have learned in these days that the church is continuing in the apostles 
doctrine, fellowship, breaking of bread and prayers and that it has purpose 
in reaching to the world. 

a. It is the Lord' s agent for reconciling the world to God. 

b. It has been commissioned and we're moving out to do battle with sin in 
our world. 

3. If we're loyal to that purpose, it may be a cross but after the cross, a 
crown. 

a. I wish that I could offer ease and contentment, peace and cessation 
from. want. But I can not. 

b. But is that, that which we really want as good soldiers of the cross? 

Must I be carried through the skies 
On flow' ry beds of ease. 
While others fought to win the prize 
And sailed thro' bloody seas? 
NO! I must fight if I would reign; 
Increase my courage. Lord! 
I'll bear the toil, endure the pain, 
^, Supported by thy word. 

36 / 



Conclusion - What will happen if we remember froni whence our blessings 
^^come and stand by the stuff? GOD WILL GIVE THE VICTORY. 

34. The meeting was adjourned for the day with Reverend Charles Teems 
pronouncing the benediction. 

FRIDAY MORNING 

35. Mr. Ken Denton, Minister of Music from First Baptist Church in Mount Holly, 
presented several organ selections before the morning session began on Friday. 

36. A worship period was led by Mr. Dwight Holden. He led the session in singing 
hymn No. 283 "My Hope is Built." Rev. James Taylor, Moderator, then led in 
prayer. Mr. Holden led the group in responsive reading No. 79 entitled "Christian 
Influence." He again led the congregation in the singing of a hymn. He chose Hymn 
No. 360 "Jesus Calls Us O'er The Tumult" to end the worship period. 

37. Rev. James Taylor, Moderator, called the meeting to order. He asked for 
miscellaneous business and there was none at this time. 

38. Rev. Yates Campbell, Chairman of the Missions Committee, extended a 
hearty welcome to three new churches; Alexander Memorial in Belmont, Fraley 
Memorial and Robinwood in Gastonia. He recommended that these churches be 
received into full fellowship of our Association. It was seconded and carried. 

39. The Moderator recognized Rev. Russell Willis who gave the Nominating 
Committee Report. He moved for the adoption of the report. It was seconded and 
carried.

asked him to preside. Mr. Willis called for the report from the American Bible Society. 
This report was given by Rev. C. V. Morris. He moved that the report be adopted. It 
was seconded and carried. 

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

Last year the society distributed 1,670,000 Bibles and 55,400,000 New Testaments 
and gospel portions written in 493 languages. The whole Bible has been translated 
into 237 languages and the New Testament into 300 languages. At least one complete 
book of the Bible has been translated into 1,250 languages and dialects. There are 
more than 2,500 spoken.

Last year the churches of Gaston Association gave $828,50 to help the society 
with its work. They were:

If the people of the world are to know Jesus Christ the one hope of men and 
nations, they MUST HAVE THE BIBLE. EACH PERSON MUST HAVE THE BIBLE IN 
HIS OWN LANGUAGE because it speaks to his heart as no other language can speak. 

But, in most countries, people CANNOT AFFORD EVEN THE COST OF PRINTING 
the Scriptures.

43. L.A. Gable, Jr. gave the report on the Children's Home. He moved for the 
adoption of this report. It was seconded and carried. 

REPORT ON CHILDREN'S HOMES 

The Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina is a multiple service social 
agency owned by the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina and operates under 
a charter granted by the state. Its purpose is to provide care, support and training 
for dependent children. To meet the varying needs of children and their families, 
the agency provides seven major services, namely: institutional care, foster home 
care, financial aid in the home, specialized services for emotionally disturbed 
children, supervision of discharged children, family counseling and other services 
designed to strengthen wholesome Christian family life throughout North Carolina. 

Gaston Association is as proud of our 4 children's homes as if they were all 
located in our county. 

Each year about 70 of our churches give more than $14,000 to their support in 
special offerings. At present Gaston County has 18 of our boys and girls in the 4 
homes, 6 in two Gaston County foster homes and 3 families receive assistance. 

All parts of our county have outstanding citizens who were alumni of the homes. 
To mention a few: 

Mr. William Howard Brown who was formerly superintendent of schools in Cherry- 
ville, an active deacon, and president of the Brotherhood at First Baptist in Cherryville. 
He is now Superintendent of Schools in Gastonia and is highly honored as a school 
man, public speaker, and churchman throughout North Carolina. A sketch of him and 
a feature article recently appeared in the Gastonia Gazette. 

Mr. Robert Alexander, a 1942 alumnus, is a pressman of the Gastonia Gazette. 
He is an expert in Karate and in growing roses. 

Mr. Noble Bell is the owner of Noble' s College of Hair Designing. He was recently 
honored in a feature article which told of his establishing a scholarship fund to help 
the students of the children's homes to go to college and technical school. 

40 



Mr. Cecil Phillips, one of this year's graduates, was the Mills Home youth week 
pastor. The home and Gaston County are justly proud of this ardent Training Union 
enthusiast and outstanding young spiritual leader. 

A FEW NEEDS OF THE HOMES 

The needs continue to be, basically, what they have been in the past: the need 
for Christian understanding and support of the children who are thrust into care out 
of circumstances which they have no control- the break up of their home, the 
disintegration of their family whether it be by economic adversity, separation of the 
parents in their marriage or whel^fc^r it be because death has come to one or both the 
mother and father. 

The needs are always, in a large measure, spiritual. They depend upon the 
prayer support of the people who know about the work, who pray in an intercessory 
way for the success of our program in keeping with the Word of God and the will 
of Christ for today's world. 

Another need also is for physical support, for we must provide the necessities of 
life and a measure of educational opportunity as well as spiritual nourishment to the 
children in our care. The needs of children who come out of these disturbing circum- 
stances often require special skilled training of qualified social case workers. 
They seek always to supply this need with those persons who have a Christian 
prospective and most often those who are Baptist and feel that this is a definite call 
from God to express their own Christian stewardship in working with staff and 
children in this way. 

Another need also includes the continued realization that we are merely an 
extension of the local church, that we are doing for the individual congregation what 
it would be virtually impossible for them to do themselves. We hardly could see a 
Baptist Children's Home in each community, but by pooling our resources and 
strengthening a good program in several locations, we are able to have the quality 
and kind of work that produces the best product in our children's experience. 

Our group care homes will continue. Our foster homes must be increased. We 
need to strengthen the work at Chapel Hill for emotionally disturbed children. 
Physical needs are: the replacement of old buildings, new units better designed for 
the kind of care that we are giving, we need to establish new programs of specialized 
services for some of our Baptist people whose needs are not being met in any way. 
We refer here to a home for unwed mothers. We have many faced with this crisis. As 
Baptist, we have done nothing about it - but, we hope this will soon be changed. We 
have no homemaker services for emergency needs in our families. There is a need 
for specialized care and provision for many retarded children in our state. 

HOW CAN WE HELP FURTHER? 

Gaston County churches can help in much the same way as in the past. They 
can continue to help in their stewardship through the Cooperative Program, Thanks- 
giving Offering, and designated gifts to the Children's Homes. They may help by 
informing one of our homes as soon as possible when family crisis occur in which 
we may be able to help through one or more areas of service. The use of our Regional 
Casework Center in Charlotte would logically be the first contact for Baptist living 
in Gaston County. The address is: Regional Casework Center, 4037 East Independence 
Boulevard in Charlotte. Miss Ellen Stephens is the casework supervisor at this 
center. 

The churches of our association also can help to find individuals who have a 
special love for the Baptist Children's Homes and who will be in a position to make 
a gift through deferred giving and estate planning.

Lee A. Gable, Jr.

With the exception of the state of Texas, North Carolina Baptist lead the Southern 
Baptist Convention in number of colleges owned and operated. We should be proud of 
our seven Baptist colleges and grateful to God for the forty- six thousand students 
that have graduated from them during their history. This year we have more than 
fourteen thousand students enrolled in these institutions. Among these two hundred 
and eighty-five are studying for the Christian ministry, fifty-four for Home and 
Foreign missions, ninety- four for ministers of education, and fifty- six for ministers 
of music. 

Teeming multitudes of our finest young people, in addition to these fourteen 
thousand enrolled, desire greatly to study in a Christian institution and under Christian 
teachers. Many will be leaders in our churches and the world tomorrow. We believe 
that Christian colleges and universities have a distinct and unique role to play in 
the world of academic adventure and training. Our seven Baptist colleges must 
share in this unique role. But all is not well. We are now involved in a crisis which 
expresses itself in the lack of funds and facilities. This has been brought about in 
part by a population explosion, security of qualified teachers, higher demands for 
accreditation, and the high cost of living. The very life of our colleges is being 
threatened. Baptists are either unable or unwilling to supply the growing needs of our 
institutions, and because we have to turn to every philanthropic organization, foun- 
dation or industry with a cry for help. A good example of this is seen in Gaston's 
Association's record for 1965. Only one- third of oiir churches gave a Christian 
Education offering which amounted to $3,173.00. To further illustrate this failure, 
we note that our largest college (Wake Forest) with a twelve million dollar annual 
budget only received $370,000.00 from North Carolina Baptists in 1965. (Note- this 
is 18^0 of all gifts and endowment income). 

The colleges themselves are trying to do something about this need. Almost all 
of our colleges set challenging campaign goals and reached them. The one hundred 
and sixty-four Gaston County Wake Forest Alumni were the first to meet their quota 
of $40,000.00. Prominent in the effort were J.K. Lewis, Robert Caldwell, Dr. Hugh 
Tyner, Dr. L.M. Morris, Dr. Joseph Smith, Henry Groves, Sr., and Max Craig. Gardner- 
Webb is probably the outstanding success story among Baptist colleges however. 
The campaign goal called for $1,250,000,00. To date, Gardner- Webb has received 
in pledges, gifts, and cash $2,600,000.00 or almost double the original goal. More 
than $130,000.00 of this amount was raised in Gaston County. 

We are grateful for each student in our colleges. We are especially thankful for 
those from our county and association. Gordon and Richard Williams, sons of Reverend 
and Mrs, J.D. Williams of Mt. Holly, are students at Wake Forest. Gordon has just 
won Phi Beta Kappa and is entering Peabody College to become a clinical psychiatrist. 
Richard, a science major, worked this summer with a noted Belgium scientist and 
the head of the science department of Atomic energy research. Mike Gunter, son of 
Mr. and Mrs. Dan Gunter of Gastonia, is president of the sophomore class. Mary 
Falls, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.B. Falls of Gastonia, is on the College Union 
Advisory Board at Wake Forest. Cleve Raefield, son of Mr. and Mrs, T.C. Raefield 
of Stanley, is vice-president of the student body at Gardner- Webb and a member of 
the basketball squad. Other outstanding students from Gaston County attending 
Gardner- Webb arej Donald Ross from Belmont, Judy Hardin from Gastonia, Tony 
Mauldin from Belmont, and Richard Lawrence from Belmont. One of our outstanding 
students attends Wingate College. Julia White, from Flint Groves Church works 
with the Ministry to silent people. 

42 



Gaston Association also provides leadership for our colleges. Rev. Walter Long 
of Belmont is a trustee at Mars Hill. Rev. Douglas Aldrich is a trustee at Meredith 
College, and Dr. Joseph P. Smith is a trustee at Wake Forest. The following men are 
on the board of trustees at Gardner- Webb College. Forest Roberts, Si,, Earl Groves, 
C.P. Nanney, Max Craig, Jr., Claude Hinson, T. Ray Helms, G.L. Kendrick, and 
M.O, Owens. 

The challenge is great for the days ahead. Gaston Association must share in 
this challenge. Our new awareness and concern for the future destiny of our colleges 
must take a form that is more than talk. We must pray and show our sincere concem 
but most of all we must be willing to open our billfolds and budgets and give in a way 
we have never given before.

45. The Report on Foreign Missions was presented by Rev. Charles Carter. Several 
names and facts were added to his report. He moved for the adoption of the report. 
It was seconded and carried. 

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 
Oct. 20-21, 1966 
I. Southern Baptists World Mission Program 
At the close of 1965, the Foreign Mission Board had 2,070 missionaries under 
appoinmient for service in 61 countries. This number includes 213 new missionaries 
appointed during the year. There is more and more stress being placed upon evange- 
lism, with specific interest in nation-wide evangelistic crusades. Receipts to the 
Foreign Mission Board from the Co-operative Program reached a total of $11,123, 
505.00 in 1965. Another $13,243,822.00 was received in designated gifts. 
II. N.C. Baptists part in the World Mission Program. 

North Carolina baptists gave $1,831,088.00 to the Co-operative Program in 1965. 
An additional $1,606,158.00 was given through the Lottie Moon Christmas offering 
and other designations for Foreign Missions. Across the years 241 persons from 
North Carolina have been appointed to missionary service by the Foreign Mission 
Board. 
III. Gaston Baptists share in the World Mission Program. 

For years the Gaston Baptist Association has led N.C. Baptists in total gifts to 
the Co-operative Program. The Association ranks second in PERCENTAGE of gifts 
to Mission causes, and also is very high in Lottie Moon offering gifts. In 1965, 
churches of the Gaston Baptist Association gave $369,900.65 to the Co-operative 
Program, plus special offerings and other designations. 

The following are foreign Missionaries sent out from Gaston County or born in 
the county who are now living, active, or emeritus. Appoinmient dates and towns

IV, Future of our World Mission Program 

It is hoped 250 missionaries may be appointed in 1966. These must be found* 
among the dedicated young people of our churches. There is a need to increase the 
FMB budget by $2, 000, 000. The greatest need is for deepening prayer for all missionary 
labor. 

46. Rev. Guy Longshore was recognized to give the report on The Home for the 
Aging. He made the motion that the report be adopted. It was seconded and carried. 

HOME FOR THE AGING 

Our four homes are wonderful places for the aging. Aunt Fannie Drumwright is 
105 years old and still enjoying every minute of her stay there. 

Gaston County residents of the homes are: Mrs. Prue Stroupe and Mrs. Julia 
James, Cherryville; Mr. R,A. Barber and Mrs. Buena Carpenter, Gastonia; Mrs. 
Minnie Sherill, Bessemer City; Miss Addie Leeper, Belmont. ■ 

Cooperative Program gifts and special offerings supply only 35% of the total 
support of the homes. So far, this year, 35 of our churches have contributed a total 
of $4,673.47 through special offerings. The special offerings are used to help 90%' 
of the residents who are unable to pay for all of their keep. There was a 5% increase 
in special offerings last year, but living costs have advanced 7%. 

Since the four homes can care for only 172 residents, a fifth home is being 
planned. It will be located at Yancey ville and will bring the total to more than 200. 
There are already 170 on the waiting lists.

47. The South Mountain Baptist Camp Report was given by Mr. Lineberger in the 
absence of Ladd Maxwell. The report was adopted as read. 

SOUTH MOUNTAIN CAMP REPORT 

God blessed your South Mountain Baptist Camp with another wonderful season. 
Many who came had a deep experience with God. Their mission vision was broadened. 
They learned how everyone should help proclaim the message of Christ throughout 
the whole world. 

Over 1800 attended your camp during the summer for some kind of planned 
activity. Four hundred sixty-eight attended from twenty churches from the Gaston 
Association. Thirteen churches from the Gaston Association contributed. 

Six hundred eighty-nine made decisions for Christ, including 136 professions of 
faith. Five hundred earned honor awards by participating in camp activities, camp 
attitude and study in G.A. or R,A, work. Over 5700 decisions for Christ, during tenj 
years of camp operation. 

'44 



The road into the camp was paved in July at a cost of $14,393.00. Half of this 
•(has been paid. However, we had to use some of our operating funds to do this. The 
remaining $7,196.00 has to be paid by February 15, 1967. Some of this has been 
.pledged. However, we will need other churches and individuals to help pay off this 
jindebtedness. Your investment in this road paving project will help us to make the 
road to Jesus and to a deeper committed life clearer for hundreds of boys and girls 
each year. 

A two story staff building is being completed. A Missionary cottage is being 
built, sponsored by Catawba River Association G.A.'s. 

I Churches, associations, pastors, conferences, and church groups are urged to use 
your camp for clinics, suppers and picnics. For information contact T.A. Lineberger,

GASTON FOLK AT CAMPS AND ASSEMBLIES - 1966 SESSIONS 

NORTH CAROLINA BAPTIST ASSEMBLY had 6,284 to register. Our association 
was 4th highest with 319. FRUITLAND CAMPS had 1,531 to register. Our association 
was highest in enrollment during some weeks and one of the highest in total attend- 
ance. CAMP CaRAway had 1,081 to register. Gaston Association was 2nd highest 
with 99 enrolled. More than 1,800 people attended various activities at SOUTH 
MOUNTAIN CAMP. Our association had the highest enrollment with 468 regular 
campers. 

48. Rev. J. A. Richardson gave the report on the State Baptist Hospital. He moved 
for the adoption of this report. It was seconded and carried. 

REPORT ON N.C. BAPTIST HOSPITAL 

When one sees a plaque on a door in the Intensive Care Section of our Nine 

million dollar hospital -- "Furnished by Gaston Baptist Association" he is 

reminded of our continuing contributions to that ministry of healing. 

Gaston Association gives about $352,000.00 annually through the cooperative 
program. Of this amount, $12,496 goes to our hospital. Through our Mother's Day 
Offering, we will give this year about $8,000.00. In 1965 we gave $7,240.39. For the 
first three quarters of this year we have given $7,691.66, and several churches have 
yet to get their offerings to the hospital. 

The people of our county receive a great blessing from our Baptist Hospital. 
Last year the hospital gave $300,000. 00 worth of services beyond the special offerings. 
It is well to remember that Gaston County people received $12,190.00 in service 
beyond insurance, plus no charges being made by the medical staff to these service 
patients. (We only gave $7,240.39 in special offerings). We are reminded from these 
statistics that ALL our Mother's Day Offerings, Cooperative Program gifts to the 
hospital, and money from Welfare Sources are used entirely for those who can't 
i pay all their way. 

Gaston County has 15 to 20 students in various training programs. About 25 
of the 1200 persons on the staff of doctors, nurses, and other personnel come from 
our county. 

It would be extremely difficult to recount the services that the hospital renders 
rto Gaston County. 

45 



(1) With little difficulty, our pastors have entered their sick, regardless of their 
financial conditions. The Medical Center treats the body with the most up to date 
methods and equipment, the mind with a trained staff of psychiatrists, and ministers 
to the souls through their chaplains. 

(2) A number of our pastors have trained in the school of pastoral care. 

(3) Doctors, nurses, and staff members serve in our assemblies and at special 
conferences to which we send multitudes of our people. 

We join our other Brethren in North Carolina in acclaiming our Medical Center 
one of the finest in the Nation. It is worthy of our support. 
W.B, Hair, member at Gastonia First, is one of its trustees.

J. A, Richardson, Jr. 

49. The Home Missions Report was presented next by Rev. Thomas Hogan, Hej 
moved for the adoption of this report. It was seconded and carried. 

HOME MISSIONS REPORT 

They serve without halo or furlough. They serve sometimes without human 
appreciation and encouragement. Still they serve faithfully though often among trying 
circumstances and amid adverse conditions. They are our Home Missionaries. 

The headlines scream of world conditions and all are distressed. The homeland 
whimpers pitifully, painfully, spiritually, morally and not many are aroused. But 
THEY hear because THEY are there. They are our Home Missionaries. 

And more and more we are listening to that cry of pathos within the homeland. 
The more we listen the more we learn the more we burn with concern for the moral 
and spiritual welfare of our own people. Maybe you know of some, are praying foi* 
some, and supporting some who as Home Missionaries are serving or have served 
Christ who said "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my 
brethren, ye have done it unto me.'* 

Among those who formerly served in Home Missions are as follows: Harold 
Medlock, Albert Medlock and Sam High who did mission work in Maryland. Harold 
is now pastor of Oakland Church, Albert is pastor in Maryland and Sam is Training 
Union Director of that state. 

Guy Walker and Charles Teems once served as associational missionaries in 
N.C., James Taylor in Tennessee and John White in S.C. 

Wade James and Charles Fulbright served in pioneer areas for a brief time 
James served in Washington state and Fulbright in Ohio. 

Among those presently serving in Home Missions are: Frank Ingram, Associational 
Missionary in N.C.; John Beam, Goodwill Center, Savannah, Ga.; Grady Pennington, 
Pastor and Associational Missionary, Indianna; Ed Jackson, Pioneer Mission Pastor, 
Maine; Fred Ellis, Missionary to the Indians, New Mexico and Mrs. Oscar Romo, 
Missionary to the Spanish speaking people, Home Mission Board. 

And churches are responding to the desire and desert. Bruington Memorial is 
assisting a church in Rochester, New York, Loray a church in Kansas, Shady Grove 
and Mt. Zion a church in Columbus, Ohio. Many churches are sending help to Cuban 
refugees. Others are substantially increasing their gifts to Home Missions through 
the Annie Armstrong Offering, among them East Baptist Church of Gastonia which 
this year doubled its previous offering by giving over $1,500. 

As a community of churches may we join hands and hearts in carrying out the 
injunction of Isaiah to •*lengthen thy cords and STRENGTHEN THY STAKES.", 



46 



Through Foreign Missions we lengthen the cords and through Home Missions we 
strengthen the stakes. The tasks are of equal urgency. Let us give ourselves to them. 
50. The next report presented to the session was on Religious Literature. This 
report was given by Rev. Alfred Wright. The report was adopted. 

REPORT ON RELIGIOUS LITERATURE 

We are happy to report that, as far as we know, all of our churches are using 
Southern Baptist literature in all their organizations. About a third of our churches 
are using the NEW LIFE AND WORK CURRICULUM MATERL\LS. We are fortunate to 
have Rev. M.O. Owens, in our association, who is writing some of the materials. 
Rev. John Hester is quite qualified in explaining the new materials. He led our 
associational clinic and conferences in various churches. 

One-fourth of our churches are using the FIVE YEAR SPIRITUAL GROWTH ma- 
terials. Rev. Douglas Aldrich is the author of some of the materials. 

HOME MISSIONS AND COMMISSION 

We have no record of subscriptions to our mission magazines. We understand 
there are too few. Since these magazines are vital in the promotion of world missions 
and give reports from our 4,500 missionaries, we urge our churches to increase their 
subscriptions and find practical means of using their contents. 

BIBLICAL RECORDER 

The Gaston association should be very proud of its contributions to one of the 
best state papers in the Southern Baptist Convention - THE BIBLICAL RECORDER, 

For one thing it contributed its editor - Marse Grant. Mr. Grant fomnerly worked 
with Firestone Textiles in Gastonia. He was a member of East Church. It was at 
East where his wife was baptized and where the Grants took their first child to Sunday 
School. 

It is believed that Gaston Association for many years has had a higher percentage 
of subscriptions than any of the other 79 associations of the state. Two-thirds of 
our churches have either the club plan or regular plan. 

The association has, through the years, furnished leaders to help develop its 
ministry. At present J.D. Williams, pastor of Mount Holly-First is a director. 

Our 2,865 families who receive the BIBLICAL RECORDER weekly know full well 
contributions that this paper makes to their spiritual development, understanding 
of Baptist issues and our knowledge of Baptist progress throughout the world. 

The paper has been exceedingly kind to Gaston Baptists. It prints pictures of 
our leaders, new churches and missions, new pastors and our unusual activities. 

Often there are articles about our associational progress, mission activities, 
training schools, church news and our support of State, Home, and Foreign Missions. 

The editor has been unusually kind in his praise of new ideas and programs that 
originated here, or convention programs that were tested here as pilot projects. 

The BIBLICAL RECORDER is sent to our pastors free of charge as a convention 
service. This is done to keep our pastors well informed, on issues difficult to obtain 
from other sources. 

Since all of our church leaders and members need the ministry of the RECORDER 
in each home, let us encourage increased subscriptions and the enlisting of churches 
that do not have the paper in their church budget. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Alfred Wright

51. The State Missions report was given by Rev. Wade McKnight. He moved for 
the adoption of the report. It was seconded and carried. 

REPORT ON STATE MISSIONS 

State Missions is that part of Baptist World Missions that primarily affects our 
state. We, as North Carolina Baptists, are very much interested in this mission pro- 
gram because its ministries are carried on with our borders and some of its seven- 
teen ministries reach even into our own association. Among them are: 

(1) Pilot projects for church programs carried on at the Loray and First churches 
in Gastonia. 

(2) Helping to set up the program of our Goodwill Center. 

(3) Making a number of surveys, including one in the Southside community. 

(4) Training many of our pastors, many of whom are graduates of Fruitland Baptist 
Institute which is directed and supported by State Missions. More than thirty 
of its alumni in the county are among our finest pastors. 

(5) Ministering to the deaf through television and conferences. The Sunday 
School Convention for the Deaf met with the **Silent'* Class of the Flint - 
Groves Church 

(6) Supplementing the salaries of some of our pastors, enabling them to give 
full-time service to their churches. 

(7) Recommending and supervising grants and loans to churches that are struggling 
to build. Some of these made to our churches in the last five years are as 
follows: 

1961: Salem $ 500.00 

Browntown . 750.00 

Bethany 1 ' 500.00 

RanloMission ';■.'. $1,000.00 

Midway 750.00 

Chapel Grove ; ' 300.00 

Plainview ' . $1,000.00 

1962: Salem 750.00 

1963: Oakgrove , 500.00 

Salem ' 750.00 

' 1964: B. City, 2nd ' 1,000.00 

:. 1965: Midway 500.00 

1966: Cleveland Hgts. 500.00 

The preceding report shows approximately $9,000 in cash ministry to our own 
churches. It would seem from this that State Missions is very much interested in 
this association. 

In many of the eighty Associations in our State Convention the State Missions 
program helps with the salary of Associational Missionaries that the ministry of 
the churches of their area may be more complete. This is not true in our Association 
since we are self-supporting. 

As we give to State Missions, we have a vital part in helping missionaries with 
their ministries to the Indians, to our military personnel, to the deaf, to the Japanese 
in our state, to our various institutes and assemblies, and to churches who need 
help on salaries and buildings. It would seem from the above reports that the dollar 
given by our people to State Missions acmally touches more varied needs than any 
dollar given for mission causes. 



48 



What are Gaston Baptists doing for State Missions? We are supporting State 
Missions as we give through the Cooperative Program. We are giving through the 
special State Mission Offering more than $8,000 each year. Across our state, the 
needs grow greater each year. It is only through our generous and prayerful financial 
support that State Missions can meet these needs for Christ.

52. A report was given on The Baptist World Alliance by Rev. Hayne Rivers. He 
moved that the report be adopted. It was seconded and carried. 

REPORT ON THE BAPTIST WORLD ALLIANCE 

The Baptist World Alliance is the world-wide fellowship of Baptists which exists 
to show more fully the essential oneness of the Baptist people in the Lord Jesus 
Christ. Through the Alliance inspiration is imparted to the brotherhood of Baptists 
and a spirit of fellowship, service and cooperation is promoted among its members. 
The Alliance may in no way interfere with the independence of the churches or assume 
the administrative functions of existing organizations. This world fellowship of 
Baptists who organized in 1905 in London, England. Since the first meeting in London 
there have been ten other Baptist World Congress meetings, the most recent one 
taking place in Miami Beach in 1965. 

Baptists of the world live and witness in 122 countries. In 1965 the Baptist world 
population numbered 27,109,339 the vast majority of these (23,848,945) being found 
in the United States. The five countries having the largest Baptist population besides 
the United States are, Russia with 545,000 Baptists, India with 481,610 Baptists, 
Brazil with 227,924 Baptists, Burma with 212,210 Baptists and the Republic of the 
Congo with 204,925 Baptists. 

Program Of The Alliance 

The Baptist World Alliance seeks to carry out a five fold program. The first is 
in the area of communications. The chief function of the Alliance lies in establishing, 
widening and maintaining communications among the Baptists of the world. This is 
accomplished through personal visits by the officers of the Alliance and through 
publications. The official publication of the Alliance is the magazine entitled "The 
Baptist World" which is edited by C.E. Bryant. The cost of this publication is $1.50 
per year for ten issues. Those wishing to subscribe may write to The Baptist World, 
1628 Sixteenth St. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20009 

The second program sponsored by the Alliance is in the area of relief. Through 



I 



49 



this program a channel is provided for member conventions, mission boards, churches 
and individuals to give aid to hungry, sick, ill-clad and homeless people. From 1960 
to 1965 the World Alliance has provided or forwarded relief, special aid to churches, * 
and food and medical supplies having a total value of $490,327. 

The third program sponsored by the World Alliance is in the area of religious 
liberty. The Constitution of the Alliance reads: "The World Alliance shall: (1) Have 
as one of its primary purposes the safeguarding and maintenance of full religious 
liberty everywhere, not only for our own constituent churches, but also for all other 
religious faiths.'^ 

Tnis function of the Alliance is still very much needed, for in many parts of the 
world people suffer discrimination because of their religious conviction. The Alliance 
seeks to maintain contact with governments and embassies and make known our 
ideals of religious liberty and plead for the lifting of restrictions where religious 
liberty is needed. 

The fourth program of the Alliance is the area of study and research. The Alliance 
encourages studies, and discussion on an international basis through its four Study 
Commissions on (1) Baptist Doctrine, (2) Religious Liberty and Human Rights, (3) 
Evangelism and Missions, and (4) Bible Study and Membership Training. About one 
hundred Baptists especially qualified for such studies have been serving on these 
Commissions and many valuable papers have been produced. 

The fifth and main function of the Alliance is to sponsor and arrange regional 
and world-wide gatherings of Baptists. Many pastors and their families from the 
Gaston Baptist Association were among the more than 19,000 in Miami Beach June 
25-30, 1965 for the Eleventh Baptist World Congress.- One of the most significant 
actions taken at Miami Beach was the election of Dr. W.R. Tolbert, Jr. of Liberia, a 
Negro as President of the Alliance. This is the first time in the history of the Alliance « 
that a Negro has served as President of the body. Dr. Tolbert also serves as Vice- 
President of the Republic of Liberia and is a Baptist minister. 

It should further be noted that two Vice-Presidents of the Alliance elected at 
Miami Beach were Southern Baptists. They are Dr. Herschel Hobbs of Oklahoma City, 
Oklahoma and Mrs. R.L. Mathis Promotion Division Director of the W.M.U. of the 
S.B.C, of Birmingham, Alabama. 

The Baptist World Alliance will hold its next meeting in 1970 in the Orient, 
probably in Japan. Those churches wishing to send their pastors would be wise to 
make annual provisions in their church budget so that the weight of expense will not 
have to be borne in one year thus taxing the 1970 church budgets.

53, After the committee reports on Gaston's participation in State and Convention 
causes, Mr. Roy Holder, Minister of Music from the host church, rendered a very 
effective solo, **Lord Be Merciful.'^ 

54. An address by Rev. M.O. Owens, Jr. pastor of the Parkwood Church in Gastonia, 
followed the special music. Rev. Owens spoke on **The Changing Face of Gaston 
County.'* His address follows: 

THE CHANGING FACE OF GASTON COUNTY 

By M. O. Owens 

We are living in an age of change. In a sense, this has always been true. Yet 

what vast, almost unbelievable changes we have witnessed in the past twenty-five 

years. Then the fastest planes flew at about 350 miles an hour. Now, there aie* 

planes which can fly at 4,000 miles an hour. Then, rockets were largely dreams in 

50 



the minds of experimenters; now, they are commonplace. Then, satellites were pure 
fantasy; now they are everyday realities, and becoming so plentiful that they collide 
with each other in space. 

Gaston County is no exception to this startling trend. Changes are vast and rapid 
in our midst. Let's look at four aspects of the situation- population, economics, 
sociology and religion. 

North Carolina is growing, but it is not one of the faster growing states. Gaston 
County, however, is an area of rapid growth in population. In 1940, there were 87,531 
people in the county. In 1950, this number had increased to 110,836. By 1960, it had 
reached 127,074. Today, in 1966, it is estimated that there are 135,000 people in our 
county. And this growth is in spite of the fact that in the decade 1950-1960, 7,506 
more people moved out of the county than moved in from outside. 

Economically, our county is considerably above the average for North Carolina. 
In 1960, the state median family income was $3,956, but the median for the county 
was $4,694 Today, the state median has increased to about $4,600, but Gaston County 
median income is well above $5,000 per family. At the same time, one-fourth of the 
families in the county in 1960-6,653 families -had incomes of less than $3,000. 
Nearly 7^o of the families in the county in that year had incomes above $10,000. A 
disturbing but important fact is that in that year the median income for non-white 
families was only $2,606, or slightly more than half the median for all families. 

Sociologically, our county has always been an interesting study. In 1960, the rate 
of population per square mile was 355, as compared with a state average of 93 per 
square mile. Today, the average is 377 persons per square mile. 

Seventy-five years the county was predominately rural- a farming area. At that 
time Gastonia was a village of 1,000 people. This has changed radically. As late as 
1954, there were 1,762 farms in the county, having 131,000 acres. In 1959, farms had 
decreased to 1,089 with 103,000 acres. Today, the number is much less. 

The Charlotte Observer for Oct. 20, 1966 quotes Vice-president Humphrey as 
saying, ''It does not make sense for our already overcrowded cities to be filled 
with more and more migrants, nor does it make sense for rural Aiiaerica to lose a good 
share of its greatest resources - its human resources." Humphrey also goes on to say, 
**The heart of our effort lies in making rural America a more attractive. „ . .place 
than it is today for people and industry .... schools, churches, parks and public 
utilities should be upgraded as high as the community can afford." 

The Vice-President's question has been asked a hundred different ways: '*How 
are you going to keep them down on the farm?" And his answer is the partial, failing 
answer of those who philosophy is akin to socialistic materialism. For he is saying 
that people can be persuaded to stay in the rural areas simply by making the physical 
surroundings more attractive - by building new, better, more beautiful buildings. This 
is part of the answer, true, but it is only a part. 

Today, 70^o of the population of the United States lives in urban areas, and the 
percentage is increasing. In Gaston County, in 1950, the rural population was 49,613. 
In 1960, this had decreased to 48,537, a 2. 2% decrease. Of these, only 3,115 actually 
lived on a farm. In the same ten year period, the urban population was increasing 
from 61,223 to 78,537, a gain of 28^o. 

Another disturbing fact is that in 1960, 13,661 of the families in the county lived 
in rented houses or apartments. Nearly all of these were in urban areas. In Gastonia 
alone, 1,243 Negro families lived in rented homes. Of these places to live, 400 had 
three rooms or less; 30 of them only one room. 

While less than l^o of the population is foreign born or of mixed parentage, in 
1960 there were 16,575 non-whites in the county, or 13^o of the total. Of the total 

51 



population, 21,881 were not born in North Carolina. Ours is a transient age. In 1960, 
33,000 of the people in the county had lived in their dwelling one year or less. This 
is 25^0 of the total. 

Gaston County has been under the average in education. In 1960, there were over 
1,000 people of adult age who had never been to school. The median grade for all 
the people was only 8. 2 grades of school. In 1960, there were 30,948 children and young 
people in all our schools. Only 741 of these were in college. Since then, Gaston 
College has been established, and the number is increasing each year, fortunately. 
The percent of whites in college in 1960 was 2.Q^(f, but of non- whites it was a pitiful 
.009%. 

The employment situation has been good for many years. In 1960, the unemploy- 
ment rate was slightly over 4%. Today it is less than 1% In 1960, there were 50,194 
people gainfully employed in the county. There are now more than 90 establishments 
which employ 100 or more people. In Gaston County is the largest concentration of 
textile manufacturers and processors in the world. 

Religiously, this is the heart of the Bible belt. There are more than 300 churches 
and synagogues in Gaston County. Of these, there are 90 churches and six missions 
affiliated with the Gaston Baptist Asssciation. These have a resident membership 
of close to 29,000, or an average of 320 per church. 

In the county today there are 105,000 people of the age of accountability. Less 
than 40, 000 are affiliated with all the other churches and religious groups of the county. 
This means that more than 35,000 people in Gaston County are not professing Chris- 
tians of any stripe. Here is a mission field right in our doors. 

With these facts before us, what does the future hold? Briefly, may I point out a 
few salient facts. 

1. We are an increasingly urban area. Every year, less acreage is farmed. Every year 
the cities and towns enlarge. And with this increase in urban area, problems increase. 

(1) Deteriorating housing is a constant fact. Areas are built us, they become 
attractive residential sections, then gradually begin to deteriorate, and unless great 
care is given, become slum areas. This is the blight of the city. And it is true 
whether the city grows or not. 

(2) A second factor is the increase in apartment dwellers. These are people who, 
for the most part, are insulated from everything, little interested in the community 
and its problems. 

(3) A third fact with which we must reckon in an urban civilization is the in- 
creasing dependence on the total national economy. To illustrate, simply imagine a 
period of one week with no electricity, no fuel gas, no train or truck transportation. 
In a very short time, people right here would starve to death, 

(4) A fourth fact is a transient population. Statistically, half the families in the 
nation will move within a year. Note again that 25*70 of the people in Gaston County 
have lived in their present dwellings less than one year. 

This area in which we live is marked for tremendous urbanization. Studies show 
that by the year 2,000 this will be the center of a strip city reaching from Raleigh 
to Greenville, S.C. and perhaps even from Norfolk, or Richmond and Washington to 
Atlanta, Georgia. Space will be at a premium. Industry, business and housing areas 
will be everywhere we look. 

2. This will become increasingly a manufacturing complex. There are now 90 
industries which employ 100 people or more. This number will increase. These will 
enlarge. Very little food or raw materials will be grown in this county. We are 
becoming a processing area, turning raw material into the finished product, or in 
some way adding to the change of it. Skills will be at more and more premium and in 
greater demand. 

52 



3. Educationally, the standards are rising, and will continue to rise. Our schools 
will be increasingly consolidated. College will become a must for all young people 
who can qualify. More and more, our schools must provide training for every child, 
whatever the intellectual level. 

4. Population -wise, by 1980, the predictions are that Gaston County will have 
160,000 people. Of these, 125,000 will be ten years of age or older. And of these, 
17,000 will be 65 years of age or older. 

5. This means that we must have nearly 7,000 new housing units within the next 
15 years. Hundreds of new businesses must be established to serve these people. 
We must have 250 new classrooms in which to teach the 8,000 more children of 
school age we will have by then. By that time, there will most likely be kinder- 
garten training for every child of 5 years. This means the necessity for perhaps 
another 100 classrooms. Somewhere must be found perhaps 400 more teachers 
for the public schools, than we now have. 

6. For each of the 300 churches now in Gaston County there are an average of 
450 people to be served. By 1980, with 25,000 more population, we shall need at 
least 50 additional churches. Of these, surely 20 will be Missionary Baptist. Our 
leaders ought even now to be smdying the population trends, the projections by 
companies like Duke Power, Public Services, Southern Bell, and others, to learn 
where these 25,000 people will live, and what sort of developments may be expected. 

We should begin now to purchase land for churches, for religious activities. For 
land will be at an ever increasing premium as it becomes more and more scarce 
and difficult to buy. 

7. A seventh fact with which we must reckon is intergration. Our churches ought 
to face squarely this fact of life. It will not go away. Under God, we have a Christian 
obligation, and we ought not to hide our heads in the sand. Here are people who are 
our neighbors. They do not have the Gospel. Can God forgive us if we look with 
compassion on the heathen of Africa and callously pass by these who are around us? 

We are facing trends and attimdes which are a part of our civilization. John 
Steinbeck points out three of these which we must deal with in some fashion. 

First, we live in a time when the rules have fallen away. Simation ethics, and the 
**new morality" are but symptoms. None of us like rules. But rules there must be, 
else the world is topsy-turvy. It is not a question of whether there will be rules, but 
rather, of what sort of rules we shall use? Without something to direct us, there are 
no guidelines. Picture driving down a highway where there are no rules, where it is 
every man for himself. This is the situation in a world without rules. The churches 
must bring our people back to the guidelines of the Bible. 

Second, we are covered up with too many "things." Ours is materialistic age. 
Children on Christmas morning open a mountain of packages, then ask, "Is that 
all?" Two days later, half of these toys and gadgets are broken or discarded. All 
of us have become too concerned with "things." The churches must point the way 
to the things of the Spirit, if the flesh is to be preserved. 

Lastly, we have entered an era of leisure time. Hundreds of our people have 
retired. They have nothing constructive to occupy their time. Thousands more, while 
working at jobs, have more leisure time than they know how to use wisely. The 
churches must point the way to a wise use of time, a "buying up of the time." 
We must teach our people how to be good stewards of the days God gives. There is 
so much that needs to be, and in truth, so little time in which to do it, if we stay 
busy with the affairs of the Kingdom of our Christ. 

The churches have been often criticized for their lack resiliency, and their 
unwillingness to change. But down through the centuries, the church has changed. 

5'3 



It has always managed to find the motivation in the needs which proliferated around 
it, and the compassion which the Master instilled. "The fields are white unto 
harvest; pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest that he thrust forth laborers into 
his harvest." 

55. Rev. Willard Singletary pronounced the benediction including thanks for the 
noon meal served by the Host church. The meeting was adjourned until after lunch. 

56. The worship period was again led by Mrs. Dwight Holden. He used a choir 
made up of pastors and music and education directors from the various churches. 
Mr. Holden led the congregation in singing Hymn No, 132, "All Hail The Power." 
He used Psalm 96 for his scripture reading and then led the group in prayer. 

57. The Moderator recognized Mrs. Hoyle Allred, Chairman of the Resolutions 
Committee who read her report. She moved that the report be adopted. It was seconded 
and carried. 

REPORT OF RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

The Forty-eighth Annual Session of Gaston Baptist Association has caused us to 
think again about the Church, its rock-like and enduring character, its mission and 
purpose for being in this present world of turmoil and international insecurity. We 
have been called to think again about our own personal lives, to see if we have 
forsaken the Lord our God in the days of our prosperity, and to search our hearts 
anew to find if we are willing to be wholly- committed unto Him as the Church of the 
Living Lord - not the church building on the corner - but the living, witnessing Church 
at work in the world where God has placed us. 

We are indeed grateful to those who have so carefully and prayerfully planned for 
this program. Each session has been informative and challenging. The close look : 
at the work in our own Association which the program has afforded has not been 
easy or without pain - for this is our mission field. We are grateful for progress 
shown and even grateful for the confrontation with the many spiritual needs yet to be 
met. The music has been timely and appropriate with hearts being prepared through 
the music and the spoken word for God's message to us to sink deep into our souls. 

These days of taking account and setting new goals would not have been possible 
without the gracious hospitality of the two host churches being extended to us: ; 
Loray Baptist Church, Gastonia, and First Baptist Church, Cherryville. We are grateful 
for the many people in these churches who worked long and hard to make this time 
together possible and so enjoyable. 

We express our sincere appreciation to The GASTONIA GAZETTE for its con- 
tinuing cooperation and coverage of our Baptist meetings and work in the County. 

May the assurance that we "serve the Lord Christ" spur us on to greater zeal I 
and devotion to Him as we go forth, making disciples. .. baptizing. .. teaching. 

Respectfully submitted, 
' ' Mrs. Hoyle Allred, Chairman 



58. The letters from the churches to the Gaston Baptist Association disclose the 
fact that as of this date 234 of our members were called from our midst by death 
during the year.

Fred King, Chairman

gave the report on the Baptist Foundation which had been omitted earlier. The 
report was adopted. 

N.C. BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

The North Carolina Foundation is relatively new. As of June 30th, the assets 
were $883,542.99. This is quite small compared to foundations in other states 
which have been in operation for many years. Through gifts and wills, you can help 
secure the Baptist Witness for future generations.

^ Metropolitan Ministry in Mecklenburg County. 

ADDRESS BY PAGE SHELTON 



All of us are aware that we are living in changing times. If this fact of life has 
not come to us through the news media or the T.V. commercials, we know this from 
our daily surroundings. Our children and grandchildren seem to live in a world quite 
apart from us. Many of you might understand from your own background the story of 
DANIEL BOONE'S reason for moving from Western North Carolina to Kentucky. It is 
told that one morning Boone woke up and saw the smoke rising from his neighbor's 
chimney, several miles across the woods. He promptly announced to his wife that 
they were going to move across the mountains. He was feeling cramped and wanted 
elbow room. 

To varying degrees in the South this kind of living was possible twenty- five years 
ago. Most of our area was still rural. What cities we had were small and not highly 
industrialized. Textile mills were the largest industry, but I am not quite sure we 
could call the cities around the mills urban centers. On the whole, town was where 
the people gathered on Saturday to buy and to visit. 

Within the LAST TWENTY YEARS the South has begun to change. Urban centers 
have appeared. A generation has grown up in the South which is urban in orientation 
and outlook. We are not as urbanized as the Northeastern section of our land. But, 
we are in the BEGINNING stages of this CHANGE from rural to urban life. The only 
thing I know about a farm is what I have read and have seen when I go visiting. It 
would be very difficult for me and others of my generation in the South to survive on 
a farm or in the rural section. 

II. 

What is the changing scene that I am referring to? In what ways does our new 
metropolitan centers differ from the rural way of life? How can this change of 
setting so radically effect our lives? 

59 



The growth of metropolitan centers such as Charlotte and Gastonia have meant 
for us that we have become INTERDEPENDENT and INTERRELATED in SOCIETY. We 
no longer grow our food and make our own clothes and build our own houses. We 
EARN a salary with which we PAY someone else for our food, our clothing and our 
shelter. Where once neighbors gathered for bam raisings, or quilting parties or a 
Saturday night dance, now we are constantly on the go: clubs, sports, visiting, 
business. Or, else we sit at home in front of the T.V. for three or four hours before 
we go to bed. 

Once the family unit was close and strongly bound together. Today children are 
too often left to make their own structures and be their own parents. An example 
of this occurred this last summer in one of the comfortable sections of Charlotte. 
The teenagers were without recreational facilities; therefore, they made up the game 
of going to the local shopping center to pester the customers and make store managers 
angry. They would block isles, insult customers and pretend to shop- lift articles. 
Parents would give the teens the car without knowing what they were doing. Oc- 
casionally the parents were UNCONCERNED, but most often they were AT A LOSS 
as to what to do. This created a problem for the whole community. It is a sign of 
our not having learned or found ways to cope with the new situation in the city. 

From the problems of the suburban teenagers it is but a brief passage to the 
problems of the families in the "inner city" areas of our urban centers. These 
families are the ones who make the newspaper when one of their members shoots 
another or the parents neglect the children. These are the families which cost the 
taxpayer large sums of money for welfare and judicial services. We are paying 
money at these two points because we failed to provide adequate education and 
training for good paying jobs in our larger community. 

It is primarily for the latter reason that the VAST MAJORITY of the poor who 
constitute our inner cities are Negroes. But what I shall point out are human problems 
COMPOUNDED by racial prejudice. When urban renewal entered one section of a 
slum residential area, the city government faced an over-whelming task. The city 
planners found in this particular section children without identifiable parents. The 
children slept where they could and ate where some neighbor had food to share. In 
most cases there was no MARITAL structure with one husband and one wife. We call 
this communal living. The problem for the city fathers was to divide this community 
into family units in order to move them into apartments across town. 

You'll find, too, in the inner city many unmarried mothers living off welfare. 
Sometimes a woman might have children to get more money, but what woman seeks 
such suffering. But have you ever tried supporting nine people on $203,00 per month. 
Most of the women do not know how to manage a house nor how to obtain birth- 
control devices. Even if they know about the latter they believe the old wives tales 
about how they will get cancer or never be able to have another child. They are ' 
ignorant from not having participated in a more inclusive society. 

Ignorance is not limited to this one area of what we take for granted. Most of the 
people in the inner- city lack any understanding concerning their rights. An example 
is housing. The people living in substandard housing do not know that their landlord 
is suppose to maintain the house and that the city requires a minimum standard. 
When they are told and attempt to get a screen door fixed or a roof patched, the land- 
lord raises the rent and is given a sixty day extension to bring his house up to 
standard evety sixty days. The landlord soothes his conscience by saying he has to 
raise the rent in order to get his money back. What of the money he has already 
gotten from rent without repairs? 

m. 

What has been our response to the misery of these outcasts of our society? 
"Well, that's all they deserve." Or, "What can you expect out of those type of 
people?" Or, we CLOSE our eyes and never see them. And if we happen to see them, I 

60 



we hope they will go away. They are the invisible Americans. 

If they seek something from the city, they are cast aside because they have no 
political power. A simple illustration of this political game concerns street lights. 
Within the last year a suburban section was added to the city of Charlotte. Within 
two weeks the street had a necessary light on every corner. At the same time an 
older section of the city had a regular light bulb on every other corner and it had 
twice the number of people. The difference was that the new section was inhabited 
by property owners who would pay taxes. The older section was slum rentals. 

Our belief at base is that these people of the slums should be able to lift them- 
selves by their boot straps. We cling to the mystic that each man is the "master 
of his fate and captain of his soul." Just as our fathers and grandfathers worked 
hard and saved their money, everyone should. We follow the tradition making some- 
thing out of ourselves without help from anyone else. "RUGGED INDIVE)UALISM" 
is our motto and "GOD HELPS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES" is our creed. And 
if these are good enough for us then everyone should be able to live by them. But 
how many of us really had no help along the way? 

What meaning does this philosophy have to a father with six kids earning $35.00 
or $40.00 per week? How do you tell him it is his fault he had to attend a second 
rate school and had to quit in order to support his mother and brothers and sisters? 
How can you look at his children and say that they must learn to accept their station 
in life? What happens the day the father decides to leave home in order for the mother 
to draw a welfare check to support the children in a fashion better than he could 
working? 

Is it really this family's fault that they are the way they are? They depend for 
food and clothing on the money the father earns. They look to the city to provide 
the education they receive, as well as the utilities they have. The city is suppose 
to protect them from the landlord's allowing their house to become substandard. 
The father looks to his boss to pay him for the work he does. The boss depends upon 
his customers for their earnings. And so the cycle goes. 

We of the city are living in an interdependent relationship with one another. No 
man is an island unaffected by what goes on around him. None of us can detach 
ourselves from the misery of part of our society. Our task must be to discover how 
to cope with the city in appropriate ways. The ways of our agrarian forefathers are 
not our ways. We must seek new ways for a new situation in life. 

IV. 

But what does all of this uncomfortable talk about the city have to do with mis- 
sions and the church? Well, God is at work in this mess we call the inner- city. He 
loves the people who are dirty and iinmoral and lazy and outcast. God has spoken 
his love for the slum- landlord and the slum- tenant; for the glue- sniffing teenagers 
of the 6th richest suburbs in the nation, and the teenage mother on welfare; for the 
church members who refuse to allow poorly clothed families in their churches, and 
for the poor families. God expressed his concern for the needy of all classes and 
races and for those who seek to minister. 

But how can I be so sure that the city is the place of God's love and concern? I 
feel that in Christ God spoke his word of love. After all John 3:16 does not limit 
God's love to one area of the world. Jesus' ministry was in the towns and in the 
country side. He called his disciples from among fishermen and tax collectors. Can 
we forget the love He showed toward Zachaeus, Mary Magdalene, the woman caught 
in adultry, the woman at the well, the blind, lame and sick? 

Even as He went to Jerusalem for the last time did our Lord not weep over the 
city for it's rejection of him? Even as this seat of the Jewish faith had killed or 
cast out the other prophets of God, so His son suffered death. But, I am not sure 
God has written this city or our cities off as hopeless. I know that where people 
are God is there seeking to bring comfort, healing and love. 

61 



This is where the churches and Christians relate to the city. This is how we can 
talk about missions by first describing the focus of the mission. God does not work J 
in a magical manner upon the hearts and lives of people. He uses us as His instru- 
ments of love. We are the ones called upon to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, 
visit the sick, provide better housing for the low income families and seek ways to 
make our cities more liveable for all. If we fail to respond, then the tasks are done 
by others or they are left undone. 

This is the place where I am supposed to set out a program for the church. The 
program is supposed to set forth the how and what of our involvement in the life of 
the city. You are correct to say "All right, you've told us the problems and sketched 
how we are to react, so now tell us how to go about taking God's love to the inner- 
city and the suburbs." 

I cannot do this. A program for the churches' ministry in the city can only be i 
worked out in the situation. Only as we become involved with the problem can we 
discover ways to meet the needs. We must start where the people are. For instance, 
my next door neighbor's marriage is on the rocks. According to the tradition I was 
nurtured in as a child, my approach should be to tell her the proper values to have 
and how sinful it is to think about divorce. I would assume she is not a Christian 
and therefore must be given the plan of salvation. Now, why should I make her feel 
more guilty than she does? What words can I say she has not already heard? Rather, 
I seek to embody Christ's love for- me and her. Once she trusts me then we can 
speak of these other matters. As Christ accepts me where I am, she, too, needs to 
be accepted where she is. As Christ frees me to become tmly human, so I must 
seek to be Christ's instrument to help her be a human being who accepts herself 
and accepts the love of God. This means I must respect her right to fail on her own 
as well as seeking ways to help her succeed. ^ 

Another example of this arose in regards to an unwed mother-to-be. She was 
from outside Charlotte. The landlady where she was staying forced her to leave. 
She contacted a Baptist pastor's wife. The pastors wife' s first approach was to 
witness to her. But she discovered the girl to be a faithful Christian and mature m 
her outlook. This was a "mistake" she had made. The pastor's wife learned what 
it means to start where a person is if we are to truly serve in love. 

While I can't tell you how to program your Goodwill Center to meet the needs of 
the people in Gastonia, let me suggest a framework for the churches. You have 
heard of the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man. A speaker at our As- 
sociational Meeting made a Trinity by adding the Familyhood of the church. By this 
we mean that as biological families are separated by distance or death, within the 
church family we can discover family- type relationships. A middle-aged or elderly 
couple can become "grandparents" or "parents" to young children or young adults. 
Thus both parties lives are enriched. 

By the same token we must establish type relations in and to the larger com- 
munity. For example, how do we speak of the Fatherhood of God to a child whose 
father is absent or bad? How can we talk about all Christians being brothers and 
sisters in Christ when there are some we refuse to associate with? This doesn't 
mean our liking everything about this other person. It does mean our accepting this 
other one as a child of God with whom we are willing to seek ways to establish non- 
existent relationships. 

It is our prayer, then that God will use us and give us the courage and wisdom forj 
the living and working these present days. 

62. The benediction was given by the new Moderator, Rev. Hogan, and the 48tl 
Annual Session of the Gaston Baptist Association was adjourned. 

63. A reception followed the adjournment for new workers and their families

organizations as Sunday School, TrainingUnion, Woman's Missionary 
Union, Brotherhood, Music and such other organizations which are 
in keeping with the purpose of this Association, with their full staffs

these organizations shall be elected by the Association in its annual 
meeting and shall serve until their successors are elected. Vacancies 
occurring between annual meetings shall be filled by the Promotional 
Committee. 

Article VII. ASSOCIATIONAL BOARD

watchcare for a period of time sufficient to prove, through practice 
and attitude, its place as a cooperating Baptist church. A church, 
upon organization, may apply for membership through the Execu-

sions Committee, such church has met the requirements stated 
above, the Missions Committee may recommend at the next annual

tribute worthily to Associational and Denominational Missions, for 
two consecutive years, shall be notifed by the Executive Committee 
that if their failure is not remedied by the next annual meeting, 
recommendation shall be made to remove said church from the 
membership in the Association.

Motion was made by Mr. Richardson that the report be adopted. 
It was seconded. Mr. Richardson moved that a bus be purchased 
for the Goodwill Center from funds available in the form of gifts 
received, offerings from churches and unused 1967 budget alloca- 
tions. These funds total $2,639.51. The motion was amended making 
the purchase subject to the approval of the Advisory Committee. 
The motion and amendment carried. 

C. L. Capps made a motion that the financial obligations of the 
Goodwill Center be paid on the basis of the 1966-67 budget until 
such time as the Metropolitan Missions Program became effective. 
The motion carried. 

11. After a short break. Rev. Pinnix led the congregation in sing- 
ing the hymn, "Have Faith in God. 

12. C. L. Capps presented the Associational Training Union Report 
and made the motion that it be adopted. It was approved. 



TRAINING UNION REPORT 

Your Associational Training Union organization has sought during 
the past year to have growth numerically and spiritually. We have 
not succeeded too well in either area. On November 28, 1966, "M'' 
night was held at Hunter Huss High School. Keener Pharr from the 
Sunday School Board was the featured speaker. Thre were over 
700 present, representing one of the largest groups we have had at 
"M" night. A very serious drama was presented by Trinity Church 
pointing out the fact that our present sprititual indoctrination of our 
church members was not sufficient for the trying times they were 
facing in the world. 

On February 13, 1967, a special meeting for pastors, training 
union directors, and ministers of education was held. Dr. Nathan 
Brooks was the speaker. This was one of the best attended meetings 
this Association has ever had for such a type program. Flint-Groves 

31 



Church members gave a demonstration of the new type programs as 
compared with the usual programs. It was a startling contrast. 

On April 2, 1967, tournaments for speakers, Bible readers, sword 
drill and memory work were held at First Church, Cherryville. 
The quality of the participants was excellent. The quantity was poor 
in most instances. Grady Gibson won the Bible reading tournament - 
hands down. There were no other participants. This should put us 
to shame. The speakers tournament was won by Mickey Blackwell. 
He also won state and south- wide honors. Sword drill was won by 
Steve Helton. Most of these participants came from Flint- Grove 
Church. Sixty-five juniors participated in memory work with sixty- 
two winners. Twenty of these were from Cherryville First Church. 
I think this report of this particular meeting needs no more em- 
phasis than the fact that so few churches are doing anything in these 
matters. 

On April 29, 1967, our Associational Youth Night was held at Bel- 
mont First Church with 215 present. This was the largest group in 
such a meeting in a long time, Jim Long and Joe Hester provided 
the leadership for this meeting. They are both now gone from the 
Association. As you can see, there is still much land to possess. We 
are well able to take it. 

We have in our Association 80 churches out of- 89 with Training 
Unions. There are some 9,000 pliis enrolled in Training Union 
with an average attendance of 4,400 plus. With a resident member- 
ship of near 28,000 and many of these Training Union enroUees 
not being members of the churches^ being in the younger age groups, 
you can see that we are many but not much. May the Lord help you 
and us as we seek to lengthen the cord and strengthen the stakes.

13. Mr. Forest Roberts, Associational Sunday School Director, pre- 
sented the Sunday School report. He made a motion that the report 
be adopted. It was seconded and carried. 



SUNDAY SCHOOL REPORT 

"Every twenty years", said Martin Luther, "God has to raise Him 
up a new church out of a new generation." 

As we pause to take inventory of the past years work that our Sun- 
day School organization of the Gaston Association has accomplished, 
through our program of Sunday Schools, we are reminded of the 
deep significance of this truth. For we see mirrored in the trends, 
indicated satisfactorily, a picture of what the New Church is be- 
coming as the leaders of tomorrow respond to the influences which 
are being poured into their lives today. More and more our leaders 
show a fine trend toward wanting to achieve the highest quality of 
work possible through a full, well-balanced program of our new 
plan of work. Of course we have a few disappointments in our 
achievements, but let us be aware of this as a challenge. God's 

32 



wisdom is unsearchable. He has a way of turning losses into gains 
and defeat into victory. 

Let us look backward and survey the past years work. Sunday 
Schools 94, 26,570 enrollment as of September 30, 1967. Let us open 
the door of opportunity to move forward to greater service, that the 
World Might Know. 

The Sunday School Staff wishes to express their deepest apprecia- 
tion for every help toward success of the Sunday School Program.

14. Mrs. Harold Strickland gave the W.M.U. report with the motion 
that it be adopted. There was a second and the motion carried. 

W.M.U. REPORT 

The year 1966-67 was a rewarding year in Woman's Missionary 
Union. Emphasis being Education and watchword of the year "Grow 
in grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ^'. 
2 Peter 3:18 

The following training was offered to the women:

To enrich the spiritual life of the women four prayer retreats 
were offered this year. Mission action was carried on through Negro 
work. Literacy work. Orthopedic Hospital work. Rest Homes and 
Gaston Baptist Center work. 

The youth work consisted of Y.W.A, Preview Study and Installation 
Service, Prayer retreat and Banquet. G.A,,'s Prayer retreats and

EVANGELISM REPORT 



This past year the churches of our association baptized 949 per- 
sons. This represents a ratio of one baptist for every 36 members. 
We are grateful to God for every person who has been brought to 
confess Jesus Christ as Lord. We call upon our churches to give 
themselves to the work that brought Christ from heaven to earth, 
evangelism. Evangelism is the heart of our churches' existence. 
Evangelism must be a two-pronged thrust. We must publicly pro- 
claim that Gospel, that is the power of God unto salvation, and we 
must personally win others to Christ. "Every Christian, a Witness^ 
must be more than a slogan, it must be a reality in our lives. 

Our churches face a tremendous evangelistic challenge in the 
Crusade of the Americas. This is more than just a two- week period 
of revivals. It is an emphasis on evangelism that should occupy our 
churches throughout 1968-69 and 70. Our churches have been chal- 
lenged by one of our mission fields, Brazil, to give ourselves to the 
work of evangelism and world missions for 1968-69. Some of the 
challenges in the Crusade of the Americas are: 

NATION-WIDE EMPHASIS ON PRAYER: Two days of prayer, 
January 14, 1968 and January 12, 1969. 

PACT: A program of "prayer partners" with individuals, groups, 
and churches on the "Other Americas'' initiated in July-August 
1968; Watch Night Prayer Service December 31, 1968. 

NATION-WIDE SEARCH FOR PROSPECTS: May- June- July- Aug- 
ust 1968. 

NATION-WIDE VISITATION WITNESSING: September-November 
1968. 

NATION-WIDE CRUSADE OF THE AMERICAS REVIVALS: March 
16-30; April 6-20; April 27 - May 11, 1969. Our date is April 6-20. 

NATION-WIDE EMPHASIS ON NEW MEMBER ORIENTATION: 
Following the Crusade of the Americas Revivals. Study of book 
"Daring Discipleship" and launch new member orientation. 

SPECIAL EMPHASIS IN NORTH CAROLINA ON CHRISTIAN 
MATURITY: January 1 - December 31, 1970. 

Adequate guidance material for cooperation with and in prepar- 
ation for the Crusade of the Americas is provided for us in the 1967- 
68 EVANGELISM PLAN BOOK already available to us and in the 
1968-69 EVANGELISM PLAN BOOK which wiU be available after 
July of 1968 from the Division of Evangelism, 301 Hillsboro St., 
Raleigh, N. C. 27603.

Ralph Webb Jr. 

Rev. Webb introduced Rev. Elvin Jones, Chairman of the Crusade 
of the Americas for Gaston Association, who gave more information 
on the program. Mr. Jones made the motion that all churches in the 
Gaston Baptist Association enter the Crusade of the Americas. The 
motion carried.

16. Rev. Webb also presented the Brotherhood report and made the 
motion that the report be adopted. It was seconded and carried. 

BROTHERHOOD REPORT 

This has been a good year for the Brotherhood organization. The 
new concept seems to have been accepted. Primarily because the 
organization is missionary in purpose. 

The Brotherhood concept has missions as its central theme in 
Baptist Men, Baptist Young Men, and Royal Ambassadors. This we 
seek to do in our churches. 

The Brotherhood concept was taught associational wide two times 
this year. 

R A REPORT 

A large numbr of boys participated in the Associational RA Pro- 
gram during 1966-67. Beginning in early January three area con- 
ferences were conducted for Counselors and potential Counselors. 
One session was in the Cherryville area, one at Mt. Holly and the 
last session was at South Marietta Street in Gastonia. At least 
seventeen churches had men at these combined meetings. 

During the summer months a successful Softball and baseball 
program was carried out under the direction of the Rev. Clarence 
Morris. 

The R.A. Leader went to several churches during the year to assist 
them in their RA program. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Jason Lee 



The Director and other officers taught the concept in a number of 
other churches. 

The churches of the association have no excuse for not being in 
or knowing of the Brotherhood Missions Organization. 

We have a good Royal Ambassador program. There was carried 
on in our association a good baseball program. This year we also 
had a small beginning in a Softball program. 

For those who have worked in our Associational Brotherhood 
Organization, whether with the men's or boy's group, goes a 
heart felt thanks to you. 

There is much to be done. Our association is a mission field in 
itself. We must all be at our best. Our best is to be dedicated to 
Christ. 

The youth of our community need the help of men. 

The aged of our community need the help of men. 

The alcoholics of our community need the help of men. 

The need of our community can only be met by our missionary 
endeavor. 

35 



We are all missionaries for the greatest missionary of all -- 
Christ.

17. Rev. A. A. Bailey presented the South Mountain Baptist Camp 
Report. The report was adopted as read. 



SOUTH MOUNTAIN CAMP REPORT 

Words cannot express to you what God did for us at South Moun- 
tain Baptist Camp this year. He was very real to most of the 2000 
who attended the camp this summer. Two hundred sixty two attended 
from the Gaston Association. 

G.A. and R.A. work became meaningful to many. Seven hundred 
campers and visitors made some type of decision for Christ. This 
includes 132 young people that made professions of faith. One 
young lady summed up the experience that many had when she 
said, "I really grew up while at camp this week." 

SUMMER CAMP ACTIVITIES 

Four R.A. Camps - 460 attendance, Five G.A. Camps - 789 at- 
tendance, Two Brotherhood - R.A. Field Days, Eight Retreats and 
Overnight Camps and One Associational Youth Retreat. 

The water problem was solved when we installed a deep well 
pump last spring. This made camping more pleasant and made it 
easier for the camp staff. 

The South Fork and the Hicks' Grove Churches have adopted a 
cabin each to be responsible for their upkeep. Other churches may 
be willing to do the same. The balance due on the road is $2,500.00. 
It is hoped that enough churches, industries, and individuals will 
make a special effort to help us liquidate this indebtedness by spring. 
Please discuss with your church the possibility of putting your camp 
in your budget! 

Your camp is equipped to enrich the lives of two hundred campers 
each week. Therefore, we urge every church to consider bringing or 
sending their young people to camp next summer. Those who have 
difficulty in having counselors to come with the children, please let 
us know, and we will work out something for them. 

Your camp director and other members of the staff are available 
to visit your church or Associational meetings to inform them about 
your camp and to help them to see the value of a camping program. 

PLEASE SUPPORT SOUTH MOUNTAIN BAPTIST CAMP, YOUR 
CAMP ! ! !

CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION 

The Baptists of North Carolina can, I feel, be extremely grateful 
to our predecessors for the foresight and vision they had of higher 
education for our young i^ople. We can be grateful to those who, 
over the years, have dedicated time, talent, money, and their lives 
toward seeing these colleges grow and prosper. Today our North 
Carolina Baptists enjoy the opportunities, fruits, and challenges 
offered by our seven institutions of higher education. It is our prayer 
that God will allow them to continue to prosper, will allow them 
to continue preparing Christian laymen and women for citizenship 
and service in North Carolina, and will allow them to continue to 
stand ready to serve and prepare young people who have dedicated 
their lives to full time Christian church work. 

Last year our colleges had an enrollment of approximately 12,000 
students. We have currently enrolled approximately one-fourth the 
total number of students who have graduated from these schools 
during their history. Gaston County sent 122 students to our col- 
leges last year. 

I like to feel that all our graduates have been prepared for full- 
time Christian living. But we can take pride in noting that we had 
249 students preparing for the ministry and 197 students preparing 
for jobs in full-time church related work. At the same time we must 
be sobered by the knowledge that this is again a numerical decrease 
in students in those categories in North Carolina - the same trend 
is experienced throughout the Southern Baptist Convention. It be- 
comes quite clear that more of our young people must dedicate their 
lives to this phase of Christian service. 

Some major changes in our institutions have come about during 
this year. Wake Forest College has become Wake Forest University. 
This institution will now be able to provide the master's degree 
and doctor's degree in several academic areas in addition to law 
and medicine. Baptist undergraduate colleges in North Carolina 
and the Southern Baptist Convention are rejoicing at the prospect 
of being able to turn to Wake Forest University for instructors with 
graduate degrees. 

Teacher prepartion at Mars Hill is coming into flower and her 
graduates are beginning to appear in the classrooms of Gaston 
County. 

Gardner-Webb continues to draft plans that will probably move 
it into senior college status in the near future, and each of the 
seven institutions has been involved with planning or completing 
work on physical facilities. It is delightful to note that these col- 
leges are all engaged in a variety of long range plans or develop- 
mental programs that will insure orderly growth to meet future 
needs of our young people. 

Four of our seven institutions have relatively new presidents. 
Dr. Norman Wiggins came to Campbell College from the law de- 
partment of Wake Forest; Dr. Ralph Scales came to Wake Forest 
from the University of Oklahoma; Dr. E. Bruce Heilman came to 

3a 



Meredith College from Peabody College; and Dr. Fred B. Bently 
came to Mars Hill from the University of Kentucky. This leaves 
Dr. Whitaker of Chowan, Dr. Bud Smith of Wingate, and Dr. Eugene 
Poston of Gardner-Webb as senior members on the Council on 
Christian Higher Education. 

Gaston County can be proud of the men she has provided to serve 
in positions of leadership as trustees of our colleges. On the board 
of trustees of Mars Hill are Dr. Walter N. Long of Belmont and Dr. 
Ula Stroupe of Mt. Holly. Joseph P. Smith of Gastonia serves on 
the board of trustees of Wake Forest University; Rev. Douglas 
Aldrich serves Meredith College in this capacity; and on Gardner- 
Webb's board of trustees we find Rev. M. O. Owens of Gastonia, 
Earl T. Groves of Gastonia, Garrie Kendrick of Mt. Holly, For- 
rest Roberts, Sr., of Gastonia, H. Max Craig, Jr. of Stanley, C. P. 
Nanney of Gastonia, and John Gibson of Dallas. 

Financing higher education continues to be a problem. This is 
true because of a variety of reasons which include: inflationary 
costs of materials, higher salaries to meet competition, advanced 
techniques which require expensive equipment, and higher standards 
which must be obtained and sustained in order to meet and hold 
accreditation standards. 

In the face of increasing costs many deserving high school stu- 
dents are forced to seek their education at other institutions. We 
have not provided sufficient room at our schools nor have we been 
able to secure aid for all students who deserve and need it. Because 
of the opportunities our Baptist Colleges offer our young people 
we must seek fruther support for them. At present the COOPERA- 
TIVE PROGRAM'S financial support is vital to our colleges. This 
year $1,578,960 has been budgeted for higher education. This re- 
presents 25.8% of the Cooperative Program income for 1966-67. 
In addition the special Christian Education Day offering in 1966 
was $132,046 and this year an 18% increase over 1965 's offering 
will probably be realized. Though this effort seems to be reasonably 
adequate the truth is that the Cooperative Program and special 
offering money represent only a moderate part of these schools 
operating budgets. Certainly the challenge for us is great. 

The North Carolina Baptist colleges have cooperated fully in the 
recent Convention -wide study of Christian higher education, spon- 
sored by the Education Commission and the executive committee 
of the Southern Baptist Convention. The results of this study, deal- 
ing with nine major areas concerning higher education, will be 
published before the first of the year. These include: Biblical 
basis for Christian higher education; the history of Southern 
Baptist higher education; preface to a philosophy of Southern Bap- 
tist higher education — faith and learning; academic scope of 
Christian higher education; religious scope of Christian higher 
education; the Christian college teacher; financing Christian high- 
er education; college-denominational relationships; and academic 
freedom and responsibility. 

In order to share this material fully with the pastors and churches 
in North Carolina, seven seminars will be conducted in the spring 

39 



of 1968, one on each college campus. Pastors and laymen are 
urged now to attend one of these meetings. In addition to this, local 
churches throughout the state will be urged to set aside a number of 
Sunday evenings for a study of Christian higher education, similar 
to the pilot studies conducted in many churches during the past year 
in the BEST program. 

May we support here in Gaston Association the efforts of this 
study group and the efforts of those who work to promote Christian 
Higher Education in North Carolina.

MISSIONS COMMITTEE REPORT 

During the year the Missions Committee met at regularly sche- 
duled meetings and several called meetings to transact the following 
business: 

1. The Missions Committee worked with the Gaston County Juve- 
nile Court and the Gaston County Welfare Department to work 
out guide lines for an Emergency Child Care Home in Gastonia. 
We have made efforts to secure such a home, but as yet have 
not been able to find one.' 

2. Many long hours were spent in conference with representa- 
tives of State and Home Mission Boards, and several work shops 
were attended in the interest of the Metropolitan Missions Pro- 
gram in our Association. This information was presented to 
the Association's General Board, Pastor's Conference, and 
numerous personal interveiws were held with interested indi- 
viduals in the Association concerning this program. 

3. Because of the extensive growth of the Goodwill Center, it be- 
came necessary to establish a Goodwill Center Committee to 
work more closely with the Director. 

4. After due consideration, the Missions Committee recommends 
that the North Main Street Baptist Church of Mount Holly, 
North Carolina be received under the watch care of the Assoc- 
iation.

GOODWILL CENTER 

Our Gaston Baptist Center continues to reach out throughout our 
association. Besides our Bible study, children's activities and the 
distribution of food, clothing, and furniture at the Center we have 
made referral of need to 17 of our churches in the Association. 
They can then follow-up with a spiritual ministry in their com- 
munity. Seldom would the needs, physically and spiritually be met 
by one visit. 

We work closely with the Welfare Department. They refer clients 
to us and we refer to them. Also Gaston Community Action feels 
free to call us and we in turn call on them for help. We work with 
our Mental Health Clinic and Vocational Rehabilitation Center. 
These organizations are here to help but many people do not know 
where to go for help. In cooperation with these we can meet needs 
and help solve the multiple problems of many people. 

One of our committees on jail ministry had a visit from a woman 
who had been helped. She told how much it meant to her and how 
she appreciated what had been done. The visits, the concern, the 
encouragement that was given in her time of desperate need. 

We are working with unwed mothers. One is a beautiful girl who 
would have been a senior in college this year. We have talked 
and prayed for and with the family. The mother, a wonderful Christ- 
ian has accepted the fact and has a tender relationship with her 
daughter. 

We work with a family with a mentally retarded nine year old 
boy. Trying to help them get him in the school at Morganton; it 
will be a year before they will have room for him. He isn't trained 
and someone donated a washing machine to help the mother keep 
things clean. They live on her husband's disability pay. They didn't 
have a sheet in the house. You helped furnish that. 

One of you answered Jesus and said "Here am I, send me" and 
you got groceries for a family. The 11 year old has leukemia. 
He goes to the Baptist Hospital every other day. The family has 
been out of work so much with this illness they were hungry. The 
mother called and humbly thanked us for help. 

One of our churches adopted a family that was found without food, 
clothing, or furniture. They minister in their community. 

Our literacy work touches not only our own adult non- readers 
but also non-English speaking people. One of our literacy teachers 
is working with Greek women. Not only to teach them to read and 
write the English language but to be a real friend to them. We also 
work with the Japanese, trying to help with their many, many 
problems. 

We need volunteers to help in all our activities at the Center. 
Will you hear Jesus say "Inasmuch as you have done it unto the 
least of these" - and answer "Here am I Lord, send me". 

Our total attendance since January for Bible classes has been 
1180 with club attendance being 2624. Almost 300 different persons 
are enrolled. Forty-five thousand pieces of clothing have been 

41 



given in Christs' name. We have helped our Negro friends to have 
clothing to attend their church services. Some of our churches 
are ministering to Negro families. Will you pray that we "Labor 
together with God" in the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. W. W. Daves 
Director 

34. The Host Pastor, Rev. Fred Crisp, was introduced to the con- 
gregation. Mr. Crisp welcomed the messengers and visitors to his 
church and gave directions concerning facilities of the church. 

35. Rev. John White presented a new gavel to the moderator and 
the Association. The gavel was made from the wood of a tree on the 
homeplace of Dr. George W. Truett. 

36. After a short break, Rev. Pinnix led the group in singing the 
hymn "Make Me a Channel of Blessing". 

37. Recognition of Agency Representatives were made by the Mod- 
erator. Mr. Charles Mack from Gardner-Webb College spoke for a 
few minutes and Rev. Jim Lambert, pastor of the Mills Home Church 
reported on the Baptist Children's Homes. 

38. Rev. J. D. Williams, Chairman of a special committee ap- 
pointed by the Moderator made a motion that the By-laws of the 
Constitution of the Gaston Baptist Association be amended by adding 
a sentence to BY-LAW SIX, THE ASSOCIATIONAL BOARD. That 
sentence shall read as follows: "One or more members of the Board 
from each of thirty per cent of the churches enrolled as members of 
the Association shall constitute a quorum". Walter Long seconded 
the motion and it carried. 

39. Rev. A. A. Bailey presented a very meaningful memorial to 
those who were called from our midst during the past year.

^n ^tmortant 



Let us keep faith with those who die and receive from them the 
flaming torch and hold it high. 

Last year the march for 234 soldiers is over, their battles are all 
fought and their victories are won and as in other days these lie down 
to rest awhile under the arching sky awaiting the bugles call. They 
have not gone from us but before us. As with our Lord, so it has 
been with them that a cloud has received them out of our sight. 

Some of us have said at funerals that we have gathered to pay our 
last respect and tribute but God forbid that we should ever do this 
again for it is unchristian and closes the door to each meaningful 
moment for memorial as we are about to experience. 

These moments of Memorial should make us grateful that Grod 
gave these loved ones to us purposefully for awhile. We ought to 
be more concerned about why he gave them than why he took them. 

These moments should make us mindful of the certainty of death, 
the uncertainty and brevity of life; however the question of how long 
we live is not as important as how well we live. 

While Mexicans mark the exact place of tragic death, let us as 
Christians mark the place of victorious living. Let us advance from 
funerals that are floral parades for the anonymous to memorable 
experiences concerning the deceased and the establishment of worthy 
memorials. 

These moments should help us to give affirmation to our faith. 
We serve not a defeated Christ but one who must reign until he 
hath put all enemies under his feet and then he shall appear glor- 
iously and victoriously to the accompaniment of all the angels and 
all the spirits of the departed dead, with the trump of God, and the 
voice of the archangel. 

These moments should challenge us to pray for the immortal 
influence of these lives. May God crown their efforts with success 
and multiply their efforts through succeeding generations. 

These moments should include a paragraph about three ministers. 
Mr. Ernest Waldrop of Lowell served several churches in South 
Carolina. Mr. James Taylor served Long Creek Memorial several 
years and while doing so he served well throughout the Gaston 
Association. Mr. Arthur Hoffman was Associate Pastor of Loray, 
and then helped to organize and then Pastor both the Temple and 
West Franklin Avenue Baptist Churches.

AMERICAN BIBLE SOCIETY 

For over 150 years, the American Bible Society has been the 
gateway through which 750 million people have shared copies of the 
Scriptures. Since 1816 the Society has distributed the Bible and is 
convinced that the Bible will continue to speak with power and truth 
in the unfolding space age. 

Since its founding, the American Bible Society has carried on a 
dynamic program of translation, production, distribution and en- 
couragement of use of the Holy Scriptures. 

The Society's work is made possible solely by voluntary gifts 
from churches and individuals. The single purpose of the American 
Bible Society is to help in sowing and sharing of God's Word through- 
out the world.

Mrs. Jason Lee 



CHILDREN'S HOMES REPORT 

The Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina have an illus- 
trious and enviable heritage in child care. One, John Haynes Mills 
conceived the vision for meeting the manifold needs for Christian 
compassion in action. 

We have been fortunate in that since this day in 1885, marking the 
beginning milestone in this venture of faith and service, many of 
our true Christian giants have stood at the helm, along with our 
Lord, in helping to chart the course for this ship of service. In 
addition, many dynamic clergymen and laymen have contributed of 
their time, energies, and resources that the scope of service to 
children might ever be broadened to encompass unmet needs as they 
were recognized: institutional care, foster home care, financial aid 
in the home, specialized services for emotionally disturbed, follow- 
up services for discharged children, and family counseling. 

52 



Jesus concerned himself with children and one of the choicest 
privileges which we share with Him today is to join hands and hearts 
in affording continued magnification of this ministry to children in 
need. Our homes are and have been involved in missions, evange- 
lism, love and affection, education, discipline and teaching, and re- 
demption for those coming under the umbrellas of opportunity pro- 
vided by Baptists. Many thousands of youngsters' lives have been 
influenced and opportunities garnered for the full development of God 
given talents and abilities, leading subsequently to more produc- 
tive, responsible, and happy citizens and homes. 

It is tragic indeed that so many youngsters must be declined in- 
cumbent services due to the limited resources available. In addi- 
tion, many of the current facilities are obsolete, antiquated and in 
dire need of replacement. Many of the facilities being used today 
were already in this condition even thrity years ago during the 
tenure of care experienced by this writer. The homes are currently 
involved in a desperately needed program of development. This is 
a long range yet visionary program which mandates some three and 
one half millions of dollars to be raised and expended over a fif- 
teen year period. (Through 1980) This program is separate and apart 
from the needs for funds for normal annual operations. 

Baptists have historically accepted the responsibility and the 
challenge for alleviating the problems and removing deterrents to a 
worthy objective. It behooves us to make the current needs of our 
Children's Homes a matter of serious prayer and resolve indivi- 
dually and collectively to increase our giving to the Cooperative 
Program, Thanksgiving Offering, and special designated gifts, 

A goodly number of Gaston Association Churches contributed 
through the Cooperative Program and special offerings. Let me chal- 
lenge each to give even more sacrificially. We would encourage you 
to explore the feasibility of including our Baptist Children's Homes 
in your plans for deferred giving and estate planning. 

Let me render a hearty and heartfelt thanks on behalf of the thou- 
sands of youngsters who have been touched by this service and to 
a saving knowledge of the grace of our Lord. Even more important, 
thanks for the sacrifices you will continue to make that our Sav- 
iour's name might be amplified for countless additional thousands 
who are to be afforded this privilege as a result of your continued 
care. May God continue to bless you as you continue to pray and to 
give that this ministry might be ever escalated in perspective, 
quantity and quality. 

Respectfully submitted, 
William H. Brown

fellowship, help and encouragement for the Baptists of the world. 
Many of these groups are very small and weak. They look to the larg- 
er bodies for prayer support, and for aid in times of need. 

Financial support for the Alliance is received from many of the 
affiliated groups. But some of them are unable to offer any help. 
The largest part of the financial obligations is paid by Southern 
Baptists. In 1966, total contributions to the general fund were ap- 
proximately $125,000. Of this amount, Southern Baptists gave 
$80,500. 

In 1966, various groups of the Alliance gave over $150,000 for 
the relief of fellow Baptists who were sufferers because of circum- 
stances, or persecution, etc. 

The next world meeting sponsored by the Alliance will be the 
7th Baptist Youth World Conference to be held in Berne, Switzer- 
land July 22-28, 1968. The 12th Baptist World Congress will be 
held in Tokyo, Japan, July 12-18, 1970. 

"The Baptist World", publication of the Alliance, is one of the 
most informative and interesting papers one could read. The cost 
is $2.00 a year or three years for $5.00. In it is found news of in- 
terest to Baptists about Baptists all over the world.

BAPTIST FOUNDATION REPORT 

Certainly in the history of the work of the Baptist Foundation and 
especially in its last four years of active promotion, 1967 will be 
remembered as a year of tragedy with our leadership. For some 
months our Chairman, Dr. I. G. Greer, has been critically ill at 
his home in Chapel Hill. Some two weeks ago our Executive Secre- 
tary, C. Gordon Maddrey, was stricken with a series of heart at- 
tacks and has remained in critical condition in Rex Hospital. The 
loss of the leadership of these two faithful men at any time would 
be tragic, but especially as we approach the annual meetings of our 
Associations throughout the Convention. 

If Mr. Maddrey were able to prepare this report, he would thrill 
us with the many interesting and challenging developments up to the 
time of his illness two weeks ago. This has been the most fruitful 
year in the work of the Foundation with many new commitments and 
marked progress in developing some of the projects of large 
standing. This is especially true of the new Home for the Aging in 
Yanceyville which you will hear much more about in the report on 
the Homes for the Aging. Certainly this will continue to consti- 
tute a great challenge to many of our people who can find in the Bap- 
tist Foundation their finest opportunity for investing in Kingdom 
Enterprises. 

HOME MISSIONS REPORT 

The Home Mission Board, organized in 1845 as the Board of 
Domestic Missions, has been serving more than 119 years. 

54 



The United States is the most influential nation in the world. 
It is the nation whose churches provide the major thrust for the 
spread of the gospel worldwide. Amazing advances in communi- 
cation provide unparalleled opportunities for sharing the gospel, 
but they also channel to the world information regarding our 
spiritual and moral weaknesses. In such a situation, every effort 
to Christianize the United States takes on global dimensions. At 
this point in human history, Home Missions must be a major concern 
of Southern Baptists. A missionary force of over 2,100 assists 
Southern Baptists in their efforts to bring men to God through 
Jesus Christ in a period characterized by National and International 
tensions, inflationary economy, growing population, moral problems, 
and mounting social changes. This force was reinforced in 1966 by 
the appointment of 427 missionaries, with 119 on career status. To 
cope with changes the agency has continued to experiment with and 
to search for relevant methods in missions. Record support came 
during the year through the Cooperative Program (4.7 million) and 
the Annie Armstrong Offering (4 million). The goal for the Annie 
Armstrong Offering was reached for the first time since 1961. 
Changes in attitudes among Southern Baptists toward the race 
problem and cooperation with National Baptists are slowly beginning 
to emerge. The workers of the Home Mission Board accept the 
Bible as The Inspired Word of God, Jesus Christ as their Saviour 
and Lord, The Great Commission as their Marching Orders, and 
The Holy Spirit as their Guide and Companion. 

When EVERYBODY EVERYWHERE wiU recognize the size and 
urgency of our Home Mission task, and pledge anew their prayers 
and support in meeting the challenge of this crusade in Home Mis- 
sions, we will take our Homeland for Christ and His Kingdom. 
A-MEN. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. F. L. Roberts, Sr. 

HOMES FOR THE AGING 

Your North Carolina Baptist Homes for the Aging have been on the 
move during the past year. Our new Home at Yanceyville was opened 
in September and received 30 more dear old people into the family 
of our Homes. The Yanceyville Home, our fifth now occupied, gives 
us a total of 200 deserving older men and women in our care in 
all of the Homes. 

As you know, we now have five Homes and an Infirmary in oper- 
ation. Resthaven and the Hayes Home in Winston-Salem; the Albe- 
marle Home at Albermarle; the Hamilton Home at Hamilton; and 
the Yanceyville Home. 

In these homes we have an eternal investment and can rejoice 
in the loving care which we are making possible for our older people. 
The majority are financially needy persons, and are supplemented 
through the love gifts of North Carolina Baptists. Two sources of 
income from the churches are increasingly vital in the support of 

55 



our residents - the Special Day Offering, received on the third 
Sunday of February each year, and our share in the Cooperative 
Program. 

The Special Day Offering for 1967 is at an all time high and has 
increased by 10% over last year. This is most commendable, but 
when we face the reality of costs, which have advanced by 20%, and 
the maintenance of a new Home and the care of 30 additional resi- 
dents at Yancey ville, we could face a real crisis during the next 
year, unless the gifts from our Baptist people continue to increase 
in proportion to our needs. Churches in the Gaston Association 
contributed $3,511.02 in 1967. This is slightly less than they did in 
1966. 

We wish to quote Mr. Wm. A. Poole, our superintendent, "We 
wish to thank all of our Baptist people across the State who are en- 
abling us to minister to the aging in Christ's nam.e, and we want 
all of you to know that each of your five homes exists for the people 
from all over your State. We could not operate without your love, 
prayers, your concern, and your financial support." 

Respectfully submitted. 
Earl W. Brockman 

STATE MISSIONS REPORT 

The aim of State Missions is to win "every creature" to Christ 
and to develop each person to carry out his function as a member of 
the body of Christ. 

All of state missions is dedicated to the worship of God and the 
proclamation of His Kingdom. State Missions begins as a person 
enters the door of his church, it goes down every highway and 
hedge, over every mountain, vale and plain in the State. 

By giving to the State Missions Offering and through the Coopera- 
tive Program each Baptist witnesses in his State every day of the 
year: in a Bible School for juvenile delinquents; to a group of Japa- 
nese wives living at Cherry Point; to the deaf throughout the State; 
to Indian people at Pembroke and Cherokee; to migrants on the East 
Coast; to preacher-boys at Fruitland Bible Institute, and in many 
other ways. 

The State Missions Offering helps feed the hungry, physically and 
spiritually, and to minister to the stranger in our midst. It helps 
clothe the naked, minister to the spiritually sick, and visit those in 
prison. 

Through State Missions, Baptists enlighten, heal and educate. 
Through State Missions men are saved from despair and suffering. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Hoyle Allred 

FOREIGN MISSIONS REPORT 

The objective of the Foreign Mission Board is to do everything 
possible to bring all men in other lands around the world to a saving 



knowledge of Jesus Christ as rapidly as possible, and to involve 
them in Christian growth and service as members of indigenous 
churches. 

The foregoing general objective expresses itself in several more 
specific objectives: 

1) To present the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively and winningly 
to all the people of other lands. 

2) To establish New Testament churches as basic units for all 
Christian fellowship and work. 

3) To utilize, with necessary adaptation, proven principles and 
methods of evangelism and church development. 

4) To encourage the Baptist churches to unite cooperatively into 
denominational organizations through which they can carry 
out their own kingdom responsibilities. 

5) To minister to human need in Christian love through service 
agencies, such as schools, hospitals, clinics, good will centers, 
and publishing houses. 

6) To train and prepare those whom the Lord calls to preach and 
serve in special ministries. 

7) To create a Christian outlook on life based upon ethical and 
moral principles in the New Testament. 

8) To appoint, send, and maintain an ever increasing number 
of God- called, and otherwise qualified, missionaries. 

9) To discharge its responsibilites in homeland cultivation of 
missionary knowledge, concern, involvement, and support. 

In commenting on the work of our Foreign Mission Board recently. 
Dr. Baker J. Cauthen, Executive Secretary, likened our topsy-turvy 
world to a ship in a rough sea, saying that it continues to roll and 
toss. As soon as a crisis passes in one place another develops 
elsewhere. 

Missionaries are caught up in developments over which they have 
no control and find that transformations suddenly have come about. 
Their concern reaches toward men, women, and children regardless 
of the governments under which they dwell. 

Dr. Cauthen says "the twentieth century has called us to look with 
fresh attention upon people rather than upon buildings, programs, 
institutions and organizations. We find ourselves called afresh to do 
what Jesus commanded in his Great Commission. We go to this task 
with full confidence that his implanted Word in the hearts of people 
will continue to be fruitful under whatever circumstances must be 
faced." 

With the sending of two couples to Ethiopia and the opening of work 
in this country in October, 1967, Southern Baptists now have mission 
work in 66 countries of the world.

R. H. (Bob) Stowe

EXECU<TIVE COMMITTEE REPORT 



The committee has met monthly for the past Associational year. 

1. Early in the year a letter of warning was sent to and conferences held 
with one of our sister churches concerning the precariousness of their rela- 
tionship with the Association. This condition had been remedied. 

2. The committee recommended to the moderator of the Association 
that he write a letter of greetings to each new pastor that came in to the 
Association. Also, that he include in the letter some basic information per- 

|taining to the work and goals of the Association. 

I 3. The connmittee set up a policy concerning the distribution of associa- 

Ipional ininutes. Since the number of minutes printed are determined by the 

tamount of money budgeted for minutes it was decided to limit the minutes to 

fa minimum of ten (10) and a maximum of thirty-two (32). The clerk is to 

ipse his own judgement in determining the number to each church. 

!j 4. Wfe have planned a change in the minutes for the ^lew-year. We trust 

jthat they shall be pleasing to you. 

ij 5. We have approved the dates of October 26-31, 1969 as the week for 

la School of Missions for our Association. 

i 6.. The committee authorized the purchase of a new over -head projector 

Ijand a new IBM multi-type typewriter for the Associational office. 

1 7. The comnnittee received the Faith Baptist Church of Bessemier City 

iijunder the watchcare of the Association upon the recommendation of the 

rissions Committee. 
8. The committee has authorized the auditing of the Association's books 
jfor the past year by the firm of Butler and Stowe C. P, A. of Gastonia, N.C. 
IjTheir report is aa follows: _ ^t 



9. At the request of Brother Hoyle Allred, Chairman of the Christian 
Social Ministries Committee, we have drafted a constitutional change which 
if approved will allow us to bring the Christian Social Ministries and the 
Director under the supervision of the Executive Committee. 

10. During the last eighteen months or so the committee has been 
seeking for a suitable site on which we could build a Associational Office 
Center. We have found such a site that is near the geographical center of 
the county. It is easily accessible from most any area of the county. The 
price is reasonable and within our reach. So we are recomimending this site 
to you for your approval. We are asking that you give your tentative approval 
is that we will have this property rezoned to meet our needs. The request for 
rezoning is already before the zoning Commission. The description of this 
lot is on separate page. 

Respectfully submitted, Wade A. McKnight, Chmn. of Executive Comn 

60 Our vice-moderator, J. A. Richardson was recognized at this point 
to preside. He presented our Moderator, Thomas Hogan, to bring the 
Associational Board Report. He moved the adoption of the report. It was 
seconded and approved.

MISSIONS COMMITTEE REPORT 

The Missions Committee of the Association has met numerous times 
throughout the year. In addition to acting on routine business matters, the 
committee sometimes visited churches and pastors in the interest of 
missionary expansion. 

The Committee served and functioned under the belief that missions 
both lockl and foreign--is still the heart-beat of the Gospel and the pulse-beat 
of the local church and Association. The importance of our' missions' task 
is seen by the urgency of world conditions, namely: (1) An unevangelized 
society--after more than 19 centuries of Christian outreach the world is 

- 23 - 



still pagan and growing nnore so each day. (2) An unchecked materialism- - 
both the dialetical materialism of Communisin and the diabolical materialism 
of Capitolism present a serious challenge to the Christian Gospel (3) An 
unsettled social climate --the Church has an unprecedented opportunity to put 
missions in action amidst the social ferment of our day (4) An unequaled 
moral decline--it is imperative that we use our missionary power and zeal 
to stem the tide of moral indecency. The Committee wishes to make two 
recommendations which we believe are steps toward fulfilling our missions 
opportunity: (1) We recommend, with approval of the Executive Board, that 
the North Main Street Baptist Church of Mount Holly, N. C. be received into 
full membership and fellowship of Gaston Baptist Association. At our 1967 
Annual Session the said Church was received under watchcare, and during 
this period has given evidence of being of like faith and order and was duly 
constituted on September 22, 1968. (2) We recommend, with approval of 
the Executive Board, that the Faith Baptist Church of Bessemer City, N.C., 
be received by the Gaston Baptist Association under watchcare for a period 
of one year. During the year it will be the responsibility of the pastor and 
church to furnish the Missions Committee with evidence that the congregation 
fulfills the requirements for membership both in faith and practice. After 
one year the committee may either recommend full membership, deny further 
watchcare status, or extend the watchcare period. 

Respectfully submitted, Charles Q. Carter, Chairman; T, J. McElveen, 
Jason Lee, Price Ewing, Jr. , Tommy Ballard 

8. Forest Roberts presented the Treasurer's Report. He made the 
motion that the report be adopted. The motion was seconded and carried.

AUDITOR'S REPORT

Gastonia, North Carolina 

Dear Sirs: 

We have examined the statements of cash receipts and disbursements 
of the General Fund and the New Lot Fund of the Gaston Baptist Association ' 
for the church year ended September 30^ 1968. Our examination was made 
in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and accordingly 
included such test of the accounting records and such other auditing pro- 
cedures as we considered necessary in the circumstances. 

In our opinion, the accompanytng statements present fairly the cash 
receipts and disbursements of the General Fund and the New Lot Fund of the 
Gaston Baptist Association for the church year ended September 30, 1968, 
in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applied on a 
basis consistent with that of the preceding year. 

Respectfully submitted, Butler & Stowe

RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE REPORT 



As we come to the close of the fiftieth annual session of the Gaston 
Baptist Association, we bow our heads and humble our hearts in expressing 
our gratitude to God for the blessings He has bestowed upon our Association 
through the past fifty years. 

We are indeed grateful to those who so carefully and prayerfully planned 
for this meeting. Each session has been informative and challenging. As 
the work of our association during this past year has been reviewed, we 
are not only thankful but we are challenged to do even more in this new.near. 
A special challenge beacons us as many of our churches are actively pre- 
paring to participate in the Crusade of the Americas next year. Two continents 
will be engaged in prayer, and we face the exciting prospect of the rebirth 
of the western hemisphere! We miust rememiber, however, that winning people 
to Christ is done by winning individuals and this must be done through us who 
compose the Church. 

Our thanks and appreciation is expressed to the First Baptist Church of 
Gastonia and the Alexis Baptist Church, our host churches, for the gracious 
hospitality that has been extended to us. For the many people who worked 
long and hard to prepare our meals and to make our time together so enjoyable, 
we are grateful. 

We express our thanks to our Associational Officers for their faithful 
service and their untiring efforts in advancing the kingdom of God and to our 

- 30 - 



Moderator, Tom Hogan, for his loving Christian manner in leading our 
association. 

To John White, our Promotional Director, and to Frances White, his 
associate and secretary, we express our thanks for their faithful service and 
their ceaseless promotion of our work throughout the association. 

It is our prayer that as we go forth from this meeting that we will go in 
the name, of Christ and be witnesses unto Him both in our community and 
Gaston County, and in North Carolina and unto the uttermiost part of the 
United States and our universe. 

Respectfully submitted, Fred High, Chairman 

28. W. E. Abrams presented the Memoriam Report. After a brief 
moment of meditation Z. Miller Freeman led in prayer. The report was 
adopted. 

IN MEMORIAM 

It is with a bit of sadness tinged with a bit of joy we come to" this part of 
the program. Sadness because we no longer see many faces we once saw in 
the audience. Joy because w^e know their spirits are now basking in the sun- 
shine of God's eternal love. 

We pause here to pay our respects to the memory of those whom death has 
separated from our fellowship during the past year. 

In honoring the memory of those who have gone on a little ahead of us, 
we could employ no better means than the recognition of their labors and 
works which follow them. How often we are reminded of some faithful one 
who no longer labors with us in person. The remembrance is brought to 
mind because of many seeds of righteousness sown in fertile ground and now 
germinating into fervent life in God's harvest field. Or was it a talent 
rightly used and now it pays in dividend in Spiritual Benediction upon the 
ghurch, the community, and the world at large. 

The influence of our faithful dead has no sunset; no clouds can hide it; 
no amount of earth or stones can crust it; floods cannot drown it nor fires 
consume it. That influence continues and shall continue until our Lord calls 
us home to be reunited in heavenly glory. 

So let us honor our beloved dead by holding in precious memory the 
influence of their labors in Christ Jesus our Lord. 

Respectfully submitted, W. E. Abrams

FORWARD 
'68-'69 A GOOD YEAR 

REPORT TO THE ASSOCIATION 

REV. JOHN L. WHITE 
Promotional Director 

Several years ago, when Dr, Wendell Belew of the Home Mission Board visited 
ur association, he said: "More things happen and come to pass in the Gaston As- 
ociation in one year than happens in most other associations in five years." 

The other day, I said to a pastor: '*I wonder what highlights I can report at the 
ssociational meeting?" He said: "I do not know ... the pickings have been very 
oor this year." 

In my study, I found that, in spite of the slump here & there, we had a good year. 

CHERRY VILLE FIRST led the association by baptising 70. UNITY had 51; EAST 
ELMONT had 30; VICTORY-28; RIDGE, SPENCER MOUNTAIN, SEVENTH AVE., 

^OODIAWN, WEST FRANKLIN AVE. & STOWE MEMORIAL had about 25 each 

UT THIS IS NOT THE WHOLE STORY 

Last year we took into our fellowship a little church, NORTH MAIN STREET OF 
lOUNT HOLLY. This year it baptised 16 to make a total membership of 63. 

MACEDONIA CHURCH, which had almost folded up, baptised 11, CHESTNUT 
IROVE and BEREA baptised 6 each & GAMBLE HILL baptised 10. These churches 
ave about 60 members. 

BINGHAM and BESSEMER CITY SECOND, with about 125 members, baptised 10 
ach and OAK GROVE with 117 members baptised 14. 

Among churches of about 150 membership, ALEXANDER MEMORIAL, CLEVELAND 
[EIGHTS and NORTHSIDE baptised 14 each. SUNNYSIDE, with 117 members, baptised 
1. 

GRACE baptised 18, SUNSET FOREST- 15, FAIRVIEW-13, NEW LIFE- 10 

nd so it v^ent in most places "the pickings were good." Some larger churches 

ad more, but not in such ratio, 

GASTON YOUTH were on the march for Christ. The STANLEY YOUTH CRUSADE, 
^HE NEW YORK CRUSADE, the summer activities, local missions projects and youth 
hoirs were quite outstanding. 

THE ASSOCIATIONAL W.M.U. - the best in the State - continued to serve & 
romote mission action at various places in the county and at the Goodwill Center, 
luch of the credit should be given to the enthusiasm and untiring efforts of Mrs. 
larold Strickland. 

Under an almost unique arrangement HOYLE ALLRED AND HIS FLINT GROVES 
:HURCH sponsored the work at MACEDONIA CHURCH with financial help from the 
tate and the Association. MACEDONIA is making unusual progress. 

FAIRVIEW and BETHANY have new educational buildings and most of our churches 
lave upgraded their facilities. TEMPLE and NEW HOPE started day-care centers; 
IRUINGTON MEMORIAL and WOODIAWN are building. The GOODWILL CENTER has 
'een moved to adequate quarters at 1408 May Street. 

There are so many to whom we should express words of deep appreciation. 
^MONG JUST A FEW OF THESE ARE: HOYLE ALLRED for his work with Macedonia; 
OVE DIXON for his directing the work of the BUILDING PLANNING COMMITTEE; 
A.O, OWENS for his work as chairman of the BUILDING WAYS & MEANS COMMITTEE 



and also for information on the new Sunday School Programs. One teaching sessioF 
had 130 in attendance; FOREST ROBERTS, who as moderator, has attended almos 
all important committee meetings and with the promotional director, visited mos 
of the churches. He has been the leader in securing property for the new building 
MRS. ROBERT J. COOK, who sold us the land for the building at a very reasonabl 
price and gave a donation of $1,000; JOE WILSON for his work as treasurer and handlin 
of bonds; WADE MCKNIGHT for his guidance in the affairs of the EXECUTIVI 
COMMITTEE; RICHARD HICKS for his work in setting up the WORLD MISSION

Theme: ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOLDIERS 

On Tuesday, November 4, 1919 in the First Baptist Church in Gastonia, th 
Gaston County Association was organized with the following churches, all locate! 
in Gaston County: Dallas, Mt. Beulah, Long Creek, Alexis, Belmont First, Belmoi 
East, Gastonia First, East Gastonia, South Marietta Street, Loray, Hickory Grovef 
High Shoals, Lowell Mayworth (Cramerton), McAdenville, Mt. Zion, Mt. Holly, Sand 
Plains, Spencer Mountain, Tuckaseege, Bruington, Cherryville, Bessemer City, an 
Shady Grove. 24 Churches with 5,271 members. 

The history of any nation or community could not be written except it be writte 
about the men and women who were instrumental in bringing to pass the things whic 
go to make history. And, so, it should not be amiss to mention a few outstandir 
characters who made the Gaston County Association what it has amounted to in th 
past. The following men and women have made history for the Baptist of Gastc 
County Association: Rev. W.C. Barrett, Rev. R,G. Mace, Dr. J.W. Whitley, Rev. T.l 
Cashwell, Rev. J.J. Beach, Rev. W.G. Camp, Rev. U.L. Barnes, Rev. C.J. BlaclU 



lev. W.B. McClure, Rev. W.L. Walters, Mrs. H.B. Moore, Mrs. M.L. Barnes, and lay- 
*nen (not a few) who have stood by through these first years and rendered faithful 
,nd efficient service. 

The Seventy-five Million Campaign was in progress when the Gaston County 
association was organized. The churches contributed to this campaign. 

1921 was a strenuous yearwiththechurches. The unsettled conditions in business, 
he restlessness of the people and the downward trend in the price of labor and 
)rincipal commodities. It was difficult to keep up the spiritual life and meet financial 
(bligations of the churches. A large percent of the members were out of jobs a 
arge part of the year. But the Lord blessed the people's efforts. 

It seems the women were not too welcomed at these associational meetings, 
rhe men believed a woman should stay in her place and not speak in the meetings. 
^G. Mace read the Womans' Work Report. 

The 40' s brought about much change in our nation, community, and church life. 
Vorld War II - Our young men marching off to serve their country. People flocking 
:o the churches. 1946-47 ... Every church experienced growth in membership both 
)y baptism and letter. During the year 1944 the name of this organized work was 
changed from Gaston County Baptist Association to Gaston Baptist Association. 

By this time in the life of our association we had 45 churches with 16,653 members, 
having celebrated our Silver Anniversary of First Baptist Church, we marched on 
:oward the 50' s with God's Leadership. 

' By 1950 there were 57 churches in our association, 56 of which had Sunday School, 
ATith total enrollment of 20,614. 

Much was said about temperance and morals in these early days. Concern about 
:he desecration of the Lord's day, "breakdown" of the homes, and alarming evil of 
:he tragedy of drinking and drunkenness. Our leaders pledged to join hands to do all 
ATithin their power to rid our land of evil. 

In the late 50's the 30,000 movement was stressed at each meeting. This movement 
vas brought into existence to assist churches in reaching more people by finding 
proper and promising locations for new work to begin. There were areas in our 
:erritory that could only be reached through new work. 

1958 - Gerthrie Colvard, Associational Promotional Secretary made report of his 
/\^ork for the year. This is the first year of this activity in the Gaston Baptist Associa- 
tion. 

' Leading into the 60' s many churches came about. The way of life for the people 
in the communities caused people to move from place to place. People started working 
more on Sundays. Church attendance fell off. More women started to work. Cost of 
living went higher and higher. What was the church to do? 

The Associational Promotional Director, John L. White, came to labor with us in 
the early 60* s. The churches began more than ever to reach out with different ministries 
to reach people for Christ. 

Such work as Literacy Work, Jail Ministry, Rest Homes, Juvenile, Orthopedics 
Vlinistry, Negro Work, and the Gaston Baptist Center. The churches marched on by 
lelping lay people to see the need of visiting and reaching people outside the church 
building. Many lives have been touched by these ministries. As one Negro lady 
expressed it, "You people have led me out of darkness into the light." Surely, God's 
Deople are marching on. 

Yes, there are many who have not bowed their knees to Baal. We now have 94 
Jihurches in the Gaston Baptist Association with membership of 36,251. 

His truth is marching on. Many are concerned and involved in His Kingdom work.

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT 

In keeping with the requirements ofthe Constitution, the Executive Committee met 
each month during the past year. 

1. Following the tentative approval given the Committee at last year's annual 
meeting by the Association for the purchase of a lot on Rankin Rd., the Committee has 
purchased said lots. 

2. Early in the year a Planning Committee was appointed by the Executive Com- 
mittee to plan an office building to meet the needs of the Association. Rev. Love Dixon 
of Bethlehem Church was appointed Chairman of this Committee. They have drawn up 
plans that have been approved by the Executive Committee and the Associational 
Board. 

17 



3. Then the Committee appointed a "Ways and Means" Committee to find ways 
and means of financing the constmction of the office building. Rev. M.O. Owens of 
Parkwood Church was appointed Chairman. Their plan for financing was approved by 
the Executive Committee and the Associational Board, and is now well known by most 
of our Baptist people of the Association. 

4. In January, Mrs. Francis White resigned as Office Secretary. Mrs. Joanne 
Pressley was secured as Secretary and Mrs. White trained her for 4 weeks. She is doing 
an excellent job. 

5. During the year the Committee purchased a 3 M Copier for the Association at 
the cost of $780.00. It is kept at the Associational Office. 

6. The Committee was finally able to find a new location for the Gaston Goodwill 
Center. It is a house at 1408 May St., Gastonia. It is adequate. We are grateful to 
Temple Baptist Church for the use of their old building so long. 

7. To better implement the supervision of the twoAssociation offices, the Execu- 
tive Committee voted to divide itself into two sub- committees, with each committee 
responsible for one office and at the same time responsible to the whole Executive 
Committee. Hoyle AUred is Chairman of Committee Association Office and Yates 
Campbell is Chairman of Committee of Christian Social Ministry. 

8. The Committee has authorized the auditing of the Association's books for the 
past year to the firm of Butler and Stowe, C.P.A. of Gastonia, N.C. Their report is as 
follows. 

9. The Committee received an appeal from the Macedonia Baptist Church for help 
during the year. After an investigation of the needs, we asked the State Mission Board 
for financial help for them. The State Board gave $1000.00 and we recommended to the 
Associational Board that we give $1000.00. We asked the Flint Groves Church to 
assume responsibility for the Macedonia Church. A 11 of this was done. Now the Lord is 
blessing the efforts pur forth by all concerned and the Church is making good progress. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Wade A. McKnight 
; -\ Chairman of Executive Committee 

7. The Associational Board Report was presented by the Clerk in the absence of our 
moderator, Mr. Forrest Roberts. He moved the adoption of the report. It was secondedl 
and carried.

CHRISTIAN SOCIAL MINISTRIES 
AND BAPTIST CENTER REPORT 

In serving the needs of society, the church's concern is to re-create the social order 
\rithin which people live both near and far. This endeavor may express itself in many 
\^ays but always it is the activity of the Holy Spirit at work through the church in the 
ostering of human relationships after the pattern of the Gospel. 

The serving ministry includes concern for the physical, mental and spiritual well- 
)eing of all individuals. Thus, the ministry of healing is made manifest not only in 
medical services, pastoral care, counseling both educational and therapeutic, but also 
is a means of reconciliation. This is evidenced in the bringing together in a context of 
goodwill, conflicting people and groups so that cpjarrels may be resolved, hatreds 
transcended and wounds healed. Through this ministry of reconciliation both persons 
and society may be made whole. 

We have experienced a desire from the social helping agencies of the country to 
work together in relieving some of the human suffering within the county. We have 
taken their referrals and have performed many acts of mercy and healing. We, in turn, 
^lave referred persons to social agencies and have seen the results of these agencies as 
members of the helping team. 

The agencies that we have worked in cooperation with throughout all of the county 
are the Social Service Department, the newly organized "Fish" organization, Gaston 
Community Action, Vocational Rehabilitation, North Carolina State Probation Depart- 
ment, Juvenile Counseling and Court System, Family Counseling Agency, The Agri- 
cultural Center in Dallas, N.C., The County Department of Corrections, The Mental 
Health Association, the Policy Department, Gaston Skills, and the Public School 
System. 

Having spoken in approximately 38 churches last year, I have found a desire from 
our pastors and laymen to know more about our Christian Social Ministries program in 
Gaston County. I wish to thank these churches and others who have contributed not only 
with voluneer assistance but with financial help in meeting the needs of the economi- 
cally disadvantaged in our County. I want to especially thank those who have prayed 
for this program in the past year and ask that you continue to pray for this ministry. 

In cooperation with the Baptist State Convention, I have been and will continue to 
be a resource person to speak in conferences on Christian Social Ministries throughout 
our state under the direction of Rev. Ernest Upchu re h. Secretary of City and Metropoli- 
tan Missions Department. 

As a result of our program churches have found new forms of mission action and 
have implemented new programs of helping needy families. 
GASTON BAPTIST CENTER 

The entire Baptist Center Facility was moved and reorganized to a house within the 
Arlington section of Gastonia. The new address is 1408 W. May Avenue. The new 
telephone no. is 864-7232. The activities are being organized so that the main program 
is geared to Tuesdays and Thursdays. The remainder of the week is spent ministering 
directly to needs within the county. 

23 



A) Mrs. Jerry Strickland directs the program of activities. Her services are in- 
valuable. 

B) The Quilting Club is under the direction of Mrs. Rose McDaniel. 

C) The children's activities are being led by members of Mrs. Owen's Sunday 
School class from Parkwood Baptist Church, under the leadership of Mrs. Nancy Brown. 

D) The sewing class for the ladies within the community will be directed by Mrs. 
Vera Lineberger of Hickory Groves Baptist Church. 

E) Cooking and nutrition classes for the preparation of Welfare foods will be led by 
instructors from the Agricultural Center in Dallas, N.C. This will be under the leader- 
ship of Mrs. Ann Woodruff from East Baptist Church. 

F) Hair styling and permanents are being given weekly by licensed beauticians. Mrs. 
Patsy Smith from Woodlawn Baptist Church in Lowell and Mrs. Earlene Gordon from 
Victory Baptist Church provide this service free of charge to the senior ladies in the' 
community. 

G) Trips for families without transportation are provided to hospitals for visiting 
sick or injured family members. Several of our churches who are helping in this 
ministry are Parkwood, Hickory Groves, and Chapel Groves. 

H) Teen outings to Ridgecrest, seasonal parties at the Baptist Center and fishing j 
trips are a monthly occurrence with the use of the V.W. bus. 

J) There are 22 volunteer workers whohelpus monthly with the various ministries. ! 

J) Mr. Jenkins from Loray Baptist Church gives free dry cleaning for the Center 
clothing, Mrs. George Green from Hickory Groves supplies us regularly with food and 
clothing for needy families. The new Baptist Center location was furnished with ap- 
pliances and furniture from businesses and interested lay people from many of our 
churches. Mrs. W.H. Leathers, from First Baptist Church, Gastonia, works on Tuesdays; 
and Thursdays supplying us with clothing. Mrs. Arizona Stirewalt, Mrs. Rose McDaniel 
and Mrs. Ethel Rinhart gave generously of their time in helping with Center activities. 
The Baptist Men of Shady Grove Church in Cherryville give generously above their 
Associational contribution. Mr. Mason from New Hope Baptist Church provides finan- 
cial assistance designated for food for needy families monthly. Mr. Emory McDaniel 

Without the help of these people, our program could not exist. 

K) We help approximately 40 families per month with food, clothing, furniture, 
lunch money, school supplies, rent, fuel, medicine, and transportation. 

L) Distributed GOOD NEWS FOR MODERN MAN and tracts to families with whom 
we ministered. 

Through our witnessing and evangelistic efforts we have experienced people being 
won to Christ, a renewal of Christian living, a desire to serve and minister to needy, 
persons and churches becoming more involved in Social Ministries within their com- 
munity. There are many people whom I need to thank, but I especially want to express 
my thanks and appreciation to Rev. Wade McKnight, Chairman of the Executive Com- 
mittee, for his understanding and guidance in the matters concerning Christian Social 
Ministries. ~ -^,

Dear Sirs: ,^ ' , / . 

We have examined the statements of cash receipts and disbursements of the Gen- 
eral Fund and the New Lot Fund of the Gaston Baptist Association for the church year 
ended September 30, 1969. Our examination was made in accordance with generally 
accepted auditing standards and accordingly included such test of the accounting 
records and such other auditing procedures as we considered necessary in the circum- 
stances. 

In our opinion, the accompanying statements present fairly the cash receipts and 
disbursements of the General Fund and the New Lot Fund of the Gaston Baptist As- 
sociation for the church year ended September 30, 1969, in accordance with generally 
accepted accounting principles applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding 
year.

MISSIONS COMMITTEE REPOET 

III 

By: Fred King 

As I review in my mind the activities of the Missions Committee during the 
Ust year, the words of our Lord as spoken in Acts 1:8 bloom up before me; **Ye 
:shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, 
nd unto the uttermost part of the earth." 

This was a simultaneous commission to all followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

e better witnesses we are at home, which is our Jerusalem, the more effective 

nd far reaching the gospel message will be throughout the world. 

I The Missions Committee has met several times during this year. We are con- 

'f:inuing to be ever more aware of the increasing need and urgency for Mission Action 

in our Association, which again we are reminded, is our Jerusalem. 

1 will- attempt to give a brief resume of some of the things accomplished by the 
Committee this year: 

Holland Memorial asked for assistance. The Missions Committee, with the help 
Df our Superintendent of Missions, Rev. Hoyle Allred, secured a student pastor who 
iwill live on the field. We made application to the State Mission Board for pastoral 
[assistance. We made up a budget for Holland Memorial and compiled information re- 
vealing a potential of 225 in Sunday School. 

One very good example, proving Missions in Action, was in December, 1968, 
when Macedonia reverted to a Mission Status, under the leadership and guidance 
of the Flint -Groves Baptist Church. Then on the first Sunday in April, 1970, Mace- 
donia resumed her full responsibilities for herself as a church, going forward with 
the blessings of Flint -Groves. 

Through our various Churches in the Gaston Association, the Gaston Baptist 
Center, and the Christian Social Ministries, we are experiencing and feeling the 
effects of an increase in our Mission Work. 

Even with these activities and accomplishments, we are keenly conscious that 
the * 'field is white unto harvest" and there is much work yet to be done. 

7. Mr, Fred Crisp, in the absence of Mr. Miller Freeman, Chairman of the Nom- 

21 



inating Committee, presented the slate of officers for 1970-71. He moved that wc 
accept the report of the Committee. It was seconded and carried. 

8. Mr. Tom Hogan, Chairman of Committee on Committees presented the Com- 
mittee's report. He moved its adoption. It was seconded and carried. 

9. Mr. Hoyle Allred, in the absence of Harold Brown, presented a Tentativcjj 
Calendar for 1971. He moved its adoption. It was seconded and carried. 

10. Mr. Love Dixon, Chairman of the Building Fund Committee presented the 
building fund report of contributions from the churches and disbursements. He 
moved its adoption. It was seconded and carried. 

11. Mr. Joe Harrison, Chairman of the Stewardship Committee, presented his 
report and moved its adoption. It was seconded and carried. 

12. Our moderator, Mr. Forest Roberts, Sr. presented an oral report from the 
General Board. He stated his personal enjoyment serving as moderator of our asso- 
ciation and the many opportunities he had had during the two years. Mr. Roberts 
expressed his appreciation for the honor afforded him by our association. 

13. Mr. Worth Braswell, Chairman of the Executive Committee, spoke a few words 
concerning his report and moved its adoption. It was seconded and carried. 

EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE REPORT 

~ ■ By: Worth Braswell 

The Executive Committee has met each month during the year and has held 
several called meetings to transact business of immediate importance. 

1. At the December meeting the Committee accepted with regrets the resig- 
nation of Mr. John White as Superintendent of Missions. A sub -committee of the 
Executive Committee was charged with the responsibility of seeking out and re- 
commending a replacement for Mr. White. 

2. The Promotional sub -committee of the Executive Committee was given the; 
responsibility of publishing our associational newsletter during the interim when 
we are without a Superintendent of Missions. 

3. In January the Executive Committee recommended to the Associational: 
General Board that we extend a call to Rev. Hoyle Allred to become our Superin- 
tendent of Missions. A job description was drawn up and presented for the approv 
al by the General Board. After discussion and changes the job description was ap- 
proved. (Copy of this job description is included elsewhere). 

4. In March recommendations were made to the Finance Committee re: 

(1) that they work with Mr. Brockman in setting up a sinking fund that all building: 
fund monies up to $1,000 per month be deposited to the sinking fund and all over to 
the building fund account. 

(2) that payment on lot be made from a savings fund at First Union National which 
is on certificate of deposit. $5,000 and $1,000. 

(3) that $50 from welfare fund of CSM be sent to widow of Bill Spradlin, whose 
home was destroyed by fire about the time of her husband's recent death. 

5. Decided that, regarding Superintendent of Missions or Director of Christian 
Social Ministry: 

**any honorarium paid for single services by Superintendent of Missions or Direc- 
tor CSM be turned into the associational treasury. Any honorarium for a program of 
longer duration shall be received by those involved.'* 

6. In February received with regrets the resignation of our Director of CSM, Rev. 

22 



Jerry Edwards. He will go to another work in Boston. Mr. Edwards left in April. 

7. Employed on a part time basis until summer and then on full time basis Mrs. 
I Jerry Strickland to carry on the work of the Good Will Center during the time we are 
i without a Director of CSM. She is to work under the direction of Superintendent of 

Missions, If a replacement is not secured by September she will again be working 
part time. Presently a committee is working with Mr. Ernest Upchurch of the State 
Dept. of Metropolitan Missions to secure a director. 

8. Authorized our Moderator, Forest Roberts, to have bonding done for the Sec- 
retary-Bookkeeper of our association in the amount of $2,000 to $5,000, 

j 9. Many decisions were made and business transacted regarding the readying 
and occupancy of our new associational offices. Open house was held in June with 
the help of associational leaders, the WMU and Brotherhood. 

10. Authorized the auditing of the Association's books for the past year by Butler 
& Stowe. 

11. The Committee received a request for help from the Holland Memorial Baptist 
Church. Our Superintendent of Missions and his wife have placed their membership 
in this church and will lend whatever assistance they can. A new pastor. Rev. Bobby 
Bodenhamer, has been called, and state assistance in the form of pastoral aid has 
been requested. 

12. Mrs. Joan Pressley has resigned as of fice secretary. She had done a commend- 
able job. The committee has employed Mrs. Dorothy Allred as office secretary to 
begin work in November at salary as stated in the budget.

for Bobby Lane Thomas of Stanley, First to attend Gardner Webb College. He is pre- 
sently enrolled.

17. Mrs. Hoyle Allied asked the body to take an early break in order to come back 
and preview the Billy Graham film "For Pete's Sake." A motion was made and sec- 
onded to approve. It was carried. The break came at 3:55 P.M. 

The session reconvened at 4:10 for the showing of the film "For Pete's Sake.'* 

19. Mr. Paul Robins led us in the singing of a hymn followed by miscellaneous 
business. It was announced at this point that there were 280 registered messengers. 

20. Our moderator recognized Mrs. Joan Pressley, Secretary of the Gaston Asso- 
ciation, who had resigned her job effective November 8th. She was presented a check 
from the association in appreciation for her work. 

21. Mr. A.A. Bailey paid special tribute to the deceased of our association in his 
memorials report. He moved the adoption of the report. It was seconded and carried. 
Mr. Bailey then had the body to stand in tribute to those who have gone to their 
reward in the Lord. It was followed by prayer. 

IN MEMORIAM 

In the past year many with failing hands have flung the flaming torch and done 
so with exhortation that we hold it high and not break faith with them. 

Being asleep, they now rest under a new set of circumstances to await the call 
of the Lord. TTiey have joined the innumerable host mentioned in Hebrews 12:1 who 
are martures, witnesses for us; not theatrical spectators of us. Their death has been 
precious in the sight of the Lord and they are to be congratulated because they died 
in the Lord and their works follow after them. 

In memory to these who marked their places among us let us pray for the im- 
mortal influence of their lives and for the affirmation of our faith so that we may 
be to others what these have been to us. Our memory of these would be fickle 
unless we remember and minister to the widows, widowers, and orphans who are 
bereft. 

Our memorial should include special mention of the expiration of two or our 
pastors, William J. Chastain, who was at Bethel until retirement, and Dr. E.V. 
Hudson pastor of Cramerton for 31 years. 

The publishing of all the names of the deceased will help in the Christian 
commendation of their lives. 

Respectfully submitted, 
A.A. Bailey

report. He spoke of the highlights of his work, the experiences he had had in visiting

The needs are great in this field of Christian Social Ministries. Tliis past year 
hundreds of people have been reached, with problems too numerous to mention. Work-

the people of our churches have responded wonderfully.

churches. Many thanks for help given to this service. 

Through evangelism, Bibles, Testaments, tracts, Christian literature has been 
given. At least 25 people have started to church, many making professions of faith. 

To inform the churches of the needs being met, the following families have been 
helped.
